While a bit smaller than past years, ICFF 2010 had tons of interesting offerings from all over the globe. Check out my personal favorites, and if you haven't been to the event yet, head over to the Javits today for your last chance to see some great things like the animated Mr. Tucker Robbins representing the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
SHEET SEAT BY UFUK KESKIN & EFECEM KUTUK
Maxwell also admired this no-waste and easy to store folding chair yesterday
LZF LAMPS MURAL BY INOCUO
This was the best in a trend of on-site production pieces. Javier Gutierrez Gil is painting a mural inside this booth, the process of which will last the four days of ICFF.
HAGIA BY KENNETH COBONPUE
It's hard not to imagine cuddling up inside this intricately-hatched outdoor bed with a good book and a fruity adult beverage.
THE HAPPY SEVENTIES BY LLADRÓ
I know this company because my grandmother loved their porcelain pieces depicting classic scenes from literature and mythology, but the newest collections have a more modern sensibility that will appeal to collectors of my generation.
This stunning booth is made entirely out of honeycomb-woven materials, from the walls to the pendant lights.
INDUSTRIAL LIGHT BULB SCULPTURES BY MILES & MAY
Filament bulbs made a strong showing at ICFF this year, and these non-functioning recycled pieces in different shapes were among the most beautiful.
MIRRORBALL AND VOID LIGHT BY TOM DIXON
I have a soft spot for Mirrorball, which I like to cover on AT from time
, and was excited to see new spins on the concept of a metal shade.
AUREOLE CHANDELIER BY JGOODDESIGN
Another light featuring filament bulbs, this chandelier is composed of several hand-blown pendants with colorful rings set within the glass.
GRASSCLOTH WALLPAPERS BY PHILIP JEFFRIES LTD.
The natural texture of grasscloth is given a fun update in new patterned and lacquered papers.
Fine wood furniture is given a playful partner with colorful tabletops and accessories to display on them.
Yesterday we announced
that this company was a recipient of the New Designer award at the show. Their hand-crafted furniture, community services, and green mindset are hugely inspirational.
Modern patterns printed on fine cotton creates the most luxurious bedding and various household textiles.
I loved this booth decorated with random ephemera, bold colors, and artisan furniture.
STEEL CABINETS BY JSPR
I love when a display case is shaped beautifully and worth looking at on its own, but manages not to distract from whatever is placed inside.
Z DINING TABLE BY HELLMAN-CHANG
This Brooklyn-based design team makes unique extension dining tables with cool mechanisms.
WALLPAPER BY DEBORAH BOWNESS
This hand-printed wallpaper is custom made with photographic imagery but given an artist's aesthetic treatment that goes beyond pictures plastered on a wall.
OWLS BY MATT PUGH DESIGN
Owls have been very popular lately, and these vintage-inspired wooden models are the sweetest interpretation yet.
