ICFF 2016 capped off a busy week in New York City as the final event in NYCxDesign, a citywide celebration of design. As always, there were plenty of new furnishings, fixtures and accessories to delight every buyer and decorator. Here are some of the things that caught Homedit’s eye, which include some from perennial favorite brands along with new finds.
Bhardt Design presented this sofa called “Mellow.” The look is sleek and modern, and it comes in a number of spectacular colors. It uses a medical-grade memory-retention fabric and a special design that incorporates cords beneath underneath. They add a special design detail and help the sofa adjust to those sitting on it.
We first thought that the shrinking of round metal inlays in this gorgeous table by Asher Israelow was just that — a random sprinkling. Come to find out that the varied dots of metal are actually representations of a star map, which only makes the work more spectacular. Israel’s tables are star maps of specific dates and this one is of the night sky on the date that Albert Einstein discovered his theory of relativity.
We’ve seen the video all over Facebook, and it was pretty cool to see the Lamzac® in person. Fatboy’s highly portable and packable lounge is all the rage. You just swing the lightweight bag to fill it with air. When you’re finished relaxing, just roll it up. The verdict? Really comfy!
This bench by Konekt was a real eye-catcher. The viking feel drew using, which makes sense — it’s called the Rib Bench. Inspired by the runs of a whale, the bench has vegetable tanned leather straps that are sewn with lovely detail. The handcrafted piece is upholstered in a cozy gotland sheepskin, hand-loomed wool and mohair textile.
There was so much cool lighting at ICFF that we hardly]y know where to begin. This fantastic chandelier by Bover Barcelona Lights was one of the most shared on social media. The Dome 90 pendant is made of more than 170 wood fragments are intertwined and sewn together one by one.
We’re always excited to see what the designers from the Philippines have brought to ICFF and 2016 was a treat! This dramatic lighting from Zarate was a big draw. Clouds of shredded stainless steel illuminated from within are mysterious and enticing. In fact, this was the international debut for the brand’s designer, 22-year-old Jim Torres.
This is just a sampling of the goodies Homedit found at ICFF 2016. Keep an eye on the website for more pieces that made their debuts at the New York fair.
