Last week we had the opportunity to visit ICFF, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair held annually in New York, which was an absolute scene. There were hundreds of fashion forward exhibitors present, and we found inspiration in the incredible designs and furnishings. Here’s a quick look at some of the things that really stole the show for us this year.
[ezcol_1quarter][/ezcol_1quarter] [ezcol_3quarter_end]Siemon and Salazar’s “growlights” are microcosms complete with their own sun. These lights are not only a fun fixture, but a great way to bring the outdoors in. Another star in the lighting world was Plumen. They design low energy lightbulbs that no longer need to be hidden behind lamp shades; they look fantastic on their own. Our friends from Apparatus studio were also there to show off their lighting collection and I was especially into their horse hair sconces (which we also spotted at XXX hotel during happy hour). We’ve loved working with them in the past and are already looking at ways to incorporate their newest light fixtures.[/ezcol_3quarter_end]
The IFCC also showcased unbelievable wall designs, like those by Anne Kyyro Quinn and Peter Glassford (San Antonio based – go Texas!). Actively working on a way to use these statement pieces in one of our current interiors. Grow house Grow has introduced new wallpapers and fabrics that bring a playful personality to any space.
Rock Paper Robot is an engineering and design firm that is transforming the way we look at commercial pieces. Their “brag table” is fantastic. We also loved the quirky creations from Anna Karlin. The use of simple geometric shapes in every product creates simplicity that stands out. Last but not least, Kreoo’s marble furnishings seemed practically perfect. With clean cut and stunning products similar to the gong design found in the bath collection, we fell in love with the bold pieces that break away from the norm.
As always, ICFF was so much fun and is the perfect creative push we needed mid-year! Be on the lookout in our next project and see if you can spot any of these gems. Or check out our page for more products that we love.
Until next time,
