“FAB FIVE FAVS!” celebrates ICFF

The 26th annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair May 17-20, 2014

Thank You ICFF for giving me the opportunity to have some Q time with my dear friend & client, Charlene Keogh of http://www.keoghdesign.com as we viewed the 26th annual ICFF. Wow, we were overwhelmed with the prolific addition of innovative, and brilliant designers coming on stage.

It was quite a challenge, but here are my “Fab Five Fav!” selections for ICFF 2014!

DUNN FURNITURE, http://www.studiodunn.com

Based in Providence, RI, this wonderful, young team of refreshing new energy in the world of furniture design headed up by Asher Dunn, captured my attention with their well-designed and meticulously crafted products. Their twist on mid-20th century modernism proved to be a breath of fresh air in an environment of stale repetition.

They thought of everything! The team at Kinder Ground have brought us the most groundbreaking approach to modular carpet design! Natural materials (100% New Zealand wool), fire resistant, design power (37 styles to choose from), family friendly, fun shapes/great style (Hexagons/Triangles/Diamonds), and no need for rug pads (EcoNet) says it all.
