ICFF: THE ROUNDUP

Once a year, New York City welcomes furniture and home decor designers and manufactures from around the world to showcase their new creations at ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair). So yesterday afternoon I headed over to this great spectacle ready for a design overdose. My expectations were surpassed. I was excited to see a lot of new talent among the veteran design houses, especially in wall coverings. The variety of materials and interpretations in wallpapers, tiles and finishes was quite extensive—actually more than I've seen in previous years. Another biggie was lighting (or maybe it was just me since I have a weakness for everything that illuminates). But seriously, the array of alternatives and designs was glorious. Last but not least, I was very happy to see a great deal of attention paid to the outdoors with a gorgeous and stylish selection of furniture and accessories for the patio and backyard. Overall, I spent a delightful afternoon drooling over such wonderful and inspiring work, but the cherry on the cake was running into design guru Karim Rashid. The fair will be open until tomorrow, so if you happen to be in this part of town, I recommend you stop by and see for yourself what's new and happening in the world of design. If not, here are a few of the many things that really caught my eye. Enjoy!

Great insights, I wish I were there, lucky you!
I know that lamp next to the cabinet with the strange legs, it's Jackson, this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUEmWEIlAVM&feature=plcp

Love it!

So fun, that must have been a blast! It's amazing the kind of crazy types of things people come up with! Love the photos, too!

the final image you include i come to learn is by students at Parsons' School of Constructed Environments. The material is a paper-backed, woven polyethylene fabric by Carnegie Fabrics. What a terrific (and fun) answer to a design studio exercise.
