    For over 30 years, ICFF has built a solid reputation as 
    North America’s platform for global design.

      ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) anchors an international celebration on a par with the Milan Furniture Fair and Stockholm Design Week, with hundreds of thousands of attendees and designers from across the globe converging on the city’s five boroughs in mid-May each year.

      This year’s show took place at the Javits Center right next door to Manhattan’s new tourist attraction, The Hudson Yards. Although it is far more convenient to take public transportation to the west side neighborhood

      • Wide aisles and easy to find booth numbers
      • Stellar panel discussions and guest speakers
      • Artistic and authentic product offerings

      Hundreds and hundreds of exhibitors from over 60 countries come to ICFF each year to showcase the newest and coolest of what’s next for interior design. ICFF attracts more than 38,000 design enthusiasts from across the globe.

        Anne Kyyrö Quinn’s sculptural approach has pioneered a new genre of interior textiles based on three-dimensional structure rather than smooth surface ornamentation.
          Resembling artworks more than conventional fabrics, the contemporary creations produced by the Anne Kyyrö Quinn studio are not textiles as you once knew them. Cut, sewn and finished by hand, their unique choice of luxury natural fabrics are crafted into interior textiles designed to blend timelessly with any setting.
            Eny Lee Parker currently resides and works in Savannah, Georgia.
              Oliver James’ lighting collection is inspired by the relationship between natural science and mathematics. The final pieces are mathematical nano designs elevated to human size.

                        Hudson Yards, is the largest private real estate development to date in North America, quite literally changing the landscape of New York City and the culinary world. Milos Hudson Yards, features an open kitchen, private dining rooms, walls of glass overlooking the Hudson River, and a spectacular outdoor terrace. I was excited to kick off design week with a Press Luncheon at this cleverly designed restaurant.
                            Nicolette Naumann, VP of AMBIENTE / Messe Frankfurt and GITA PR hosted a stylish luncheon in celebration of the worlds leading trade fair for consumer goods. Members of the Press, Designers, and Influencers met at the fancy new Milos Restaurant located at 20 Hudson Yards in the private room along with a private chef and dozens of friendly waiters who re-filled your water glass and wine glass every time you took a sip. I was so thirsty that day.
