Creative Collabrations-New York City

Dividing my time as an exhibitor at Surtex NYC, a trend-forward design surface pattern show with my NYC based studio, Design Works International, attending the ICFF, International Contemporary Furniture Fair, where I was part of the IFDA’s “Take A Seat” campaign which is an on going project promoting talent within the design community while giving back to local charities, (on May 27th we will auction off our one of a kind up-cycled chairs with more details on the IFDA website) and visiting the National Stationary show to view the latest and greatest in graphic design and new printing techniques…..it was a week of “Creative Collabrations”!

All three exhibitions were located at the Javitz Center at 655 West 34th Street.

Surtex, in its 29th year is a business to business marketplace dedicated to selling and licensing original art and design. The show features an unparalleled and up-to-the-minute range of color, design and pattern trends for every product category imaginable!

High Point Furniture Market – Berry Bliss

Hate to say we told you so but back on September 19th DESIGNWORKSSTYLE.COM spoke about Berry Bliss as a current trend in the market. That was from Nancy’s trip to Europe. We now have these photos from High Point to back up our blog post… Trending are berry tones in woven geometrics, prints and patterns as well as stripes and updated chevrons. These beautiful pics were taken at The Bassett Showroom IHFC, 12th floor and are the perfect mix of berry color combinations.

High Point Furniture Market – Legacy Home

Nancy here, as promised still sharing from The High Point Furniture Market!!

Market might be over but the excitement is not…. Have to share “Legacy Home” because I was so impressed with their style, sense of color and fabric choices…a well merchandised and styled line of bedding, pillows, drapery and headboards. See for yourself as you view the following fab prints, patterns and weaves! Legacy Home Collections are available through-the-trade and their website is legacylinens.com
