In 2005, Reformput together an incredible exhibition on California Design.  Both floors of the gallery were filled with items that were shown at the Pasadena Museum of Art's California Design exhibitions.  Not only were there amazing objects, but Sam Maloof, Otto Natzler, Otto Hieno, The Ackermans,  Harrison McIntosh and many other of the artists and designers were there at the opening. It was a big deal.
