Innovative Design in New York

ICFF is always a favorite trade show and this year our mid-May adventure to NY certainly fueled our design engines!

Canadian based molo’s soft collection of partition walls, seating, tables and lighting made of flexible honeycomb structures of recycled/recyclable papers and textiles was by far the most innovative design we saw at ICFF – bravo!!

Ever since we first saw Anna Karlin a few years ago at the Architectural Digest Home Show we always love to see what new designs she has created – so talented! LOVE her W Chairs – they look like iron but are actually hand carved hard maple!

Piano – furniture – art! Great meeting Maciej Markowicz and seeing his wonderful Leaning Piano design!

Although the Javits lighting made it hard to capture a great shot – Simon Pearce’s stand beautifully showcased their lighting! If they are not already they should be your go to source for simple, elegant glass lighting and table top!

After visiting ICFF we headed uptown to the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse where an ultra talented group of designers went all in to create stunning rooms to raise money for after-school and enrichment programs for the children of New York!

Our favorite room was by the wonderfully talented and kind P`C Design member Alan Tanksley! Alan’s richly detailed top floor Gentlemen’s Study titled “Pavlos’ Retreat” was filled with visual treasures! Alan chose to design for and dedicate his room to his friend Pavlos Papageorgiou, the husband of Alexa Hampton – long time friend, designer extraordinaire, and daughter of Alan’s first design employer Mark Hampton.

We also LOVED the homes spiraling center stairway art gallery designed by Philip Mitchell Design. Philip used the personal art collection he shares with his partner Mark Narsansky to create a masterful art galley up the core of the home. On the day we visited the showhouse the delightful Mark manned the stairway – such a pleasure meeting him and hearing about how they created this exquisite gallery which left the walls of their Canadian home bare!

The ever talented Jamie Drake of Drake Design Associates created a beautiful and captivating entrance to the home with burgundy walls dusted with mica and whimsical cloud-like light sculptures.
