Besides endless rows of exhibitors showcasing the newest design products for the modern home, Dwell on Design will feature some special, curated exhibitions that will definitely be worth a look. Back for the third year in a row, Dwell Outdoor will feature modern outdoor living trends, including landscape architecture, outdoor furnishings, and prefab architecture. Inhabitat-featured miniHome and Modern Shed are two just two of the exhibitors that will be part of this innovative, pop-up community.

The conference will offer two days of sustainability forumprogramming covering a variety of green topics, ranging from building an eco-friendly kitchen to creating gardens and green in the city, to building sustainable communities. On Sunday, the day kicks off with a discussion about socially engaged design with Project H founder Emily Pilloton and Dwell Editor Sarah Rich, both former Inhabitat editors.
