Niche Design Friends Kim Nadel and Margaret Lydecker were at the show with a number of new pieces, the most notable of which were these new stools, which have been written up a lot lately. Made from reclaimed walnut and steel, they are as solid as it gets but light on the eye.

James Murphy James has come a long way since we first met him at his debut two years ago! Aiming for the high end, he showed off two new pieces: Halo Table (White oak and cararra marble with a black lacquer finish) and Stapleton bench (American black walnut with black lacquered legs and a topstitched white leather cushion). They are available through Karkula in NYC.

Square Root Studio Tim Wall is from Brooklyn, and we found him out on the edge of the show in a very cool little precinct with some very creative designers. His Fold stool was his new baby. Made from a single piece of wood and a simple pattern, Fold is one continuous line. "fold is lightweight, durable, and can be dressed up or down."
