From May 19-22, over 900 exhibitors from around the world will convene in New York to showcase what’s new for luxury interior design. The International Contemporary Furniture Fair is the cornerstone event for NYCxDesign, an annual citywide celebration of design, and draws thousands of architects, designers, developers and merchandisers.
It can be overwhelming walking into a fair of this size. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of seven exhibitors you’re absolutely not going to want to miss at this year’s ICFF.
In collaboration with eclectic tile artist Melinda Mezey, HearthCabinet will debut The KI Series. These new units are fitted with Mezey’s ancient Mesopotamia inspired hand-painted tile mural, paired with a Pantone finish. Vibrant and customizable, HearthCabinet fireplaces are ventless, which means they can be installed virtually anywhere.
A trendy finish can make any faucet or fixture the standout piece in the room. This season, THG Paris has debuted their Blush finish, a marriage of copper and pink/gold hues. The French atelier will also present Le 9, a new collection of bathroom fixtures featuring defined contours and stylish surfaces created in collaboration with the Pierre-Yves Rochon; as well as a brand new series of towel warmers.
At this year’s ICFF, Humanscale will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic Freedom chair, and honor the legacy of its long-time design partner Niels Diffrient. Their booth will feature the evolution of their line of ergonomic seating and highlight the partnership with Diffrient through the designs he developed for the brand over the years. When it was designed in 1999 the Freedom Chair was the first self-adjust chair on the market, and 20 years later, it’s still the gold standard.
GRAFF will be exhibiting a series of kitchen and bath collections including the Vintage Faucet Collection, an array of new finishes, and the Harley collection.
The industrial design of the contemporary Harley Collection was inspired by classic motorcycles, with detail work paying homage to the iconic company of the same name. While the Vintage Collection offers an update on nostalgic designs, drawing inspiration from vintage fire hose nozzles and spouts.
Ever evolving, Baldwin Hardware is highlighting new technology in their ICFF booth. Their collections of smart technology enabled hardware, including Baldwin Evolved and Touchscreen, offer security and convenience to consumer’s front door hardware, while still maintaining their signature luxurious aesthetic. Baldwin will also showcase their new Hollywood Hills collection of pulls by Erinn V. in 16 finishes.
Hastings Tile & Bath
This year Hastings Tile & Bath will introduce a brand new finish for their VOLA collection: matte white. As an addition to the collection of 27 colors and finishes, the sleek white option offers versatility and subtlety. Also presented will be two new vanities – Class and Underground – and the relaunched Chelsea tub in two sizes and four unique finishes.
Villeroy & Boch USA
Villeroy & Boch is one of the world’s leading premium brands for ceramic products. At this year’s show, the company will highlight its popular bathroom collection, Architectura, as well as debut the brand new Memento 2.0 collection. Geared towards the needs of installers, planners, and architects the collections offer a wide range of bathtubs, toilets and washbasins.
