From Design Week, With Love

From Design Week, With Love

Unles you’re living under a rock–a high-end, impecibly designed rock sure, but a rock nonetheless–than you are well aware that a throng of designers of all stripes will be descending on New York this weekend, as the annual ICFF design week kicks off. Though it’s become so much more, from MePa to Greene Street there’s tons to check out, so where to start? Glad you asked. Here are AN‘s picks, from designers and products to our events and others. So come on out from under that rock, if for no other reason than to check out this year’s model.


ICFF Preview: From sleek to scrappy, here’s a first look at some products and companies at this year’s furniture fair, with an emphasis on American designers. This sampling points to an eclectic and pragmatic moment in the design zeitgeist, and four dynamic talents to watch.
