ICFF, May 17th

ok, so my reviews are late. i'm sorry! i'm having a lot of trouble judging exactly how long things are going to take me with my little one here!

first, i'll review the ICFF, which i attended with my husband dave and little miss anna jae. we saw a lot of great items and displays, and even anna got to have some fun!

amuneal, who had my favorite booth last year, wowed us with their 2009 booth build. fabricated by this amazing company, the booth was aluminum and iron (i think). dragonflies adorned the outer walls, while the lights from the javits center shone through the openings. plus, their sign was just yummy typeset-like goodness. =)

artemide's chandelier, with text on the interior of the shade, was refreshingly different.

chato & co. had fun, whimsical wallpaper prints in the most outrageous colors.

anna jae takes a ride on magis' dodo rockers.

lovely furniture from diane paparo studios. all locally made and striving towards a greener home.

tables/footrests at hastens display. i just love the concept of a dog with a paper. =)

the japan pavilion at the ICFF.

jonathan adler's display was lovely. both a living and selling space at the same time.

kikkerland design, based in harlem, created their display from 3000 campbells soup cans, purchased from supermarkets in the city. after the show, they donated the cans to city harvest to feed those in need. it was an amazing display, both from a visual and a human perspective.

miss print's lovely pendant lamps and wallpaper.

gorgeous gold placemats from chilewich.

and finally, i give you my husband's prized parking job on the day we visited the ICFF. he insisted on taking pics of it while i got anna in the car (you can see my head in the back), and insisted even further on me posting it on the blog. so, i hope you all appreciate his efforts. =)
