ICFF Trends and Finds

New York’s 26th annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair delivers design’s timely truths and latest trends. More than 600 exhibitors from all points of the globe display contemporary furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath for residential and commercial interiors. This remarkable throng of over 600 exhibitors creates an unparalleled opportunity to view a broad yet highly focused selection of the world’s finest, most innovative, and original avant-garde home and contract products. There is a great range of vendors this year, many familiar faces and new arrivals. What is fascinating to notice is the strong influence of digital technology on the contemporary trends, bringing the product design to a whole new level of innovation, especially tile and wallpaper . Let’s take a look at my favorite finds from the show this year:

The wallpapers stole the show. Wallpaper is trending with a vengeance, and the options are more innovative than ever. Here are a few of the lines that remind us to expect the unexpected:

LED Wallpapers Lighting is a feature that one would normally expect to see next to or attached to the wall but Meystyle has abandoned that tradition and incorporated lights into the wallpapers. The subtle lighting adds an aesthetic quality but also provides a spatial marker at night when all the other lights are off. The use of Swarovski crystals accentuates the impact of the LEDs. Meystyle’s mission is to rescue walls from the background, and they hit a home run – the new 2014 patterns are better than ever…

    Like you mentioned, glass fencing is definitely more sophisticated looking and goes well with today’s modern trends. The glass also doesn’t obstruct light from coming into any area. It makes any room look more spacious with its translucent characteristics. Great article on embracing natural light in the home!
