Inside One of the Country's Most Luxurious Prefabs, by Angela Elias.  May 6th, 2014.

"If you've ever fantasized about living in a luxury prefab but have a ton of unanswered questions about the process, you may be in luck. This Summer, Blu Homes is teaming up with Real Simple and This Old House to launch a series of Blu Homes tours throughout California and New York. The grand finale? The unveiling of the 2014 LA Dream Home in August! We got a chance to take one of the California tours, a BluHomes Breezehouse on Mare Island designed by Courtney Lake of Monogram Design, and fell in love. Check out our favorite design moments, and visit BluHomes for more tour schedules!"

Emeryville-based Luke Austin of Oak & Wood and Oakland-based woodworker Joey Alvarez sought to capture the playful nature of the state through their CA Table (above). The team launched the design this summer and is working on expanding the finish and wood options. Our current favorite is the CA Table in burled wood.  It perfectly captures the duality of California’s antiquity and modernity.
