10 Designers & Brands to Have on your Radar at the Architectural Digest Design Show

Now in its 18th year, the AD Design Show is the annual luxury showcase for all things design. Held from March 21–24 and located at Piers 92 & 94, the show draws everyone from vendors to designers and design enthusiasts alike. With over 400 brands displaying new residential and hospitality designs broken into four very different sections on the show floor—REFRESH, FURNISH, MADE, and SHOPS—here is a roadmap to some of the coolest new designs to see at the show.


SIGNATURE KITCHEN SUITE, BOOTH 293 | Signature Kitchen Suite is introducing 18” and 24” Integrated Column Wine Refrigerators replete with state-of-the-art Wine Cave technology designed to address vibration, light, temperature, and moisture effects. Coinciding with the launch of the integrated wine refrigerator series is the brand’s new True Sommelier App—which helps wine collectors manage their personal collections through a user preference profile for the most accurate recommendations possible. Created in collaboration with Wine Ring, which is the industry’s AI-driven, personalization software, this is one app any wine lover will love with their new Signature Kitchen Suite Wine Refrigerator.

ARTISTIC TILE, BOOTH 172 | Founded in 1987 by CEO Nancy Epstein, Artistic Tile carries everything from hard-to-find marbles, natural stones, modern classic mosaics, and so much more. At this year’s show, attendees will be able to take a peek at the brand’s Capraia tile, showcased in a design rather than as a large format tile. The stunning white Italian marble Breccia Capraia tile features a distinctive green and purple veining and is sourced from the same quarry that yields Calacatta Gold, Statuario, and Arabescato marbles.

TRUE RESIDENTIAL, BOOTH 369 | True Residential, a luxury home refrigeration brand with commercial DNA, is showcasing its vibrant new Emerald hue in their full-size and undercounter units. The striking new addition to the Build Your True program of custom finishes and hardware showcases the brands dedication to providing designers and homeowners style and design flexibility. It’s also perfect to make your neighbors green with envy. Shown: 30” Refrigerator Column in Emerald and Gold Hardware and 30” Refrigerator Column with a Glass Door in Emerald with Copper Hardware.

LONDON BASIN COMPANY, BOOTH 250 | Founded by interior designer Anna Callis, The London Basin Company takes design inspiration from Callis’ global travels, in many cases creating modern interpretations of traditional Oriental and Middle Eastern patterns. The richly detailed and vibrant Yasmin porcelain basin was hand-decorated and hand-finished. Shown with taps from The Watermark Collection.


KGBL, BOOTH 101 | KGBL’s unapologetically modern design ethos always yields some of the most swanky designs. Their customizable Lennox Bench, which will be showcased at the show, combines some serious comfort with some serious style. Clementine Orange leather and similarly hued velvet seats are stacked to form the perfect combination over walnut legs.

 | California-based artist and designer Stevie Howell is debuting her eponymous fabric-by-the-yard and wallcoverings collections. The new lines, which feature gorgeous, fashion-forward patterns, embrace sustainable and ethical production practices. The designer’s stylish appeal stems from previously designing elevated loungewear. Also on view at the show will be a few of Howell’s collaborations, including a ceramic lamp with LA-based Victoria Morris and a furniture collaboration with St. Louis-based brand, Forsyth.


ALEXALLEN STUDIO, BOOTH M114 | Founded by Alexandra Burr and Allen Slamic in 2013, the Brooklyn-based AlexAllen Studio is known for their lighting designs, furniture, and architecture. Their new Chord Cluster Bronze Pendant Light is the latest to join the Chord family. With simple, semi-circular shapes that interact beautifully with each other, the new design is a modern interpretation of the classic form.

KIN & COMPANY, BOOTH M312 | The aptly-named Kin & Company is a Brooklyn-based studio founded by cousins Joseph Vidich and Kira de Paola. Their mesmerizing designs span the gamut, including furniture and objects featuring unexpected shapes, details, and materials. The design shown here is part of their original Cascade collection of mobiles. New versions will be introduced at the show.


SAVED, BOOTH S305 | Brooklyn-based artist Sean McNanney offers attendees some retail therapy with a Shops booth full of his most recent wares including soft-to-the-touch throws, pillows, and blankets. Inspired by Mongolian culture, each textile and product is handcrafted from sustainably-sourced Mongolian Yak Down, cashmere, and camel hair. Photo: @pinkyellowstudio
