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.
PHILIP WATTS DESIGN, http://www.philipwattsdesign.com
Based in Nottingham, England with US agent, rudd & associates in Woodstock, GA, these hand-made custom creations bring innovate excitement to any space! Philip Watts is definitely taking bronze to new heights!
JAMES HARRIS STUDIO, http://www.jamieharris.com
Bringing the quality of Murano to Brooklyn, NY, Jamie Harris stands out in the realm of glass blowers as he expresses his commitment to original designed glass sculpture.
META DESIGN, http://www.meta.com.tw
I simple adore Yaungo Cheng’s delicate yet fresh and minimal approach to very functional items in our environment, and the sensitivity of the team to the preservation of our environment.
KINDER GROUND, http://www.kinderground.net
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.
LIVING FURNITURE, http://www.greentowersusa.com
gets our honorable mention for Urban Agricultural Design
“Grow Food. Relax, it’s Easy!”
