The week is coming to an end, and though I could probably keep featuring lists of random cool stuff I found at the gift fair for the rest of the year, I gotta cut it off sometime. So to complete my trifecta of NYIGF coverage, check out my final five faves from this season’s show.
I’m already a big fan of John Robshaw, thanks to his colorful and tasteful block print textiles, and I was so excited to see these Handpainted Pillows depicting various flora and fauna – I want them all!
It was easy to waste time in the Jonathan Adler booth - he is so funny in person and the booth is always so well decorated, you just want to kick back on a mod sofa, take a treat from one of his “Quaalude” cookie jars and stay all day. There was too much great, new stuff to pick just one item, so I closed my eyes and right-clicked on this beautiful blue Cubes Throw.
This booth was one of my favorites this year. Since 1929, they’ve been producing luxury linens that are sold world-wide. The designs are simple and elegant – just what you seek in bath essentials. My favorite is the Esperanza line - a zero-twist Milagro terry with customizable piping.
In the debut of their bedding collection, Thomas Paul, known for their charming sea faring designs showed an awesome bedding collection. Pictured above: A hand-screened Duvet Cover with an overscaled octopus motif.
