LOS ANGELES – For the second year, Caroma®, the worldwide leader in high-efficiency, dual-flush toilets for commercial and residential use, is a proud sponsor of the MODERN LIVING Showhouse, a one-of-a-kind green designer home set to be unveiled by style and sustainability company ecofabulous on June 24 at this year’s Dwell on Design Show in Los Angeles. Dwell on Design, a three-day exposition of design industry leaders and manufacturers’ products and services, also includes presentations, panels and keynote speakers who are scheduled throughout the weekend. The West Coast’s largest annual event of its kind, Dwell on Design will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, June 24-26.

Each year, Dwell on Design partners with ecofabulous to design and decorate a pre-built constructed home that epitomizes aspirational, sustainable living. This year, founder Zem Joaquin teamed up with leading architect Jonathan Davis of pieceHomes®, and sustainable prefab builder, OneBuild, to create a modern dweller’s 550 sq. ft. eco-friendly dream home. The team tapped Caroma to supply high-efficiency bathroom products for the home’s interior, including Caroma’s Brisbane above counter sink, and coordinating Brisbane 270 Round Front Plus, high-efficiency toilet. Considering this year’s home is about “innovation,” and incorporates a modern palette, Caroma’s cutting-edge and design-forward Brisbane collection was a natural fit.

“The MODERN LIVING Showhouse is an excellent example of what Caroma has always stood for: highly-functional and design-forward products, all while being eco-friendly,” said Derek Kirkpatrick, North American General Manager of Caroma USA. “Zem Joaquin and Jonathan Davis have done an incredible job at showing how to live a stylish, yet sustainable lifestyle. Caroma is very honored and excited to be participating in the MODERN LIVING Showhouse again this year.”

As in years prior, the showhome will be auctioned off by eBay Giving Works with the proceeds going to Global Green USA. However unique to this year, the house will leave the floor at Dwell on Design on June 26 and travel to a second location, where it will remain on view until July 15, when the auction closes.
