FS05: THE OTHER SIDE: A Tradition of Alternatives

The ninth annual Furniture Society conference was held June 8th-11th, 2005, at San Diego State University,San Diego, California.
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA has always been a hothouse of alternative design ever since the architect brothers of Greene and
Greene first developed the “California Bungalow” in 1910. A warm temperate climate and the enchantment of the Pacific
Ocean have lured artists and designers from around the world for over a century.  It was in this context, a tradition of alternative thinking, that the organizers of the Ninth Furniture Society conference created programming and events.
