ICFF 2006: Sangiorgio, Unison & Dwell
This Italian line of children’s furniture really stood out to us. We liked the color, the simplicity and the fun of it. Of particular note were the tempered glass sliding cabinet doors. We stood on the glass and it didn’t break. Those Italians make it good. Sangiorgio is available through Bograd Kids at 200 Lex.
Unison is a the result of an American design couple’s return from exile in Finland (just who do you think they were working for there?). This colorful high cotton line is their first collection and a real palate cleanser at that. Mod Mom would love this. It just makes you happy to look at.
Dwell is going dark, baby! We couldn’t believe their new line of higher quality, dark urban funk. While it smacks a little bit of MTV Cribs, it was so refreshing to see the changes. The tabletop was particularly nice and much more tasteful.
