The MOCA Contemporaries—the young professional support council of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles—hosted a vernissage at the Pacific Design Center for the opening of "Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec." To celebrate the sibling design duo, who flew in from France, MOCA enlisted singer Morganne and disc jockey Eddie Ruscha, son of painter Ed Ruscha.

After NeoCon madness had subsided, the Gunlocke Company and Interior Design threw a post-party to inaugurate the showstopping Sojourn lounge system. On hand for cocktails, live jazz, and summer fun at the New York showroom were representatives of major local firms—from Mancini-Duffy and Hillier Architecture to the Rockwell Group and Rafael Viñoly Architects.
