NY Design Week in Review (Part 1): As awesome as advertised

Earlier this month New York City played host to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair as well as a number of other shows, including Wanted Design. In addition to the shows and displays are the parties that all together comprise NYC’s Design Week (though it can last up to 2 weeks depending on who you ask). Design Week attracts visitors from all over the world to revel in the great works produced by designers from Brooklyn, Chicago, Europe, Asia, and pretty much everywhere else. For those of you who haven’t been, it’s a must do.

A few members of our team made the trip from Chicago to take part in the festivities and see what’s happening in the NYC international design scene. We’d received a dozen recommendations to check it out over the last year since 1) the designs would be of great interest to us and 2) there is no larger gathering of talented independent designers. If you were one of the people that recommended ICFF to us, thank you. You were absolutely right. ICFF was incredible and so was the rest of Design Week. We met hundreds of incredible people and took in really cool and innovative designs from all over the world. We’ll definitely be making the trip back each year but from now we’ll be staying at least an entire week.

If you couldn’t make the trip this year, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check back for the remaining 3 parts from our first New York City Design Week.
