Keep an eye out in the coming year for some of the shades seen below.ICFF Trends 2.001.jpeg

Trend Spotting at ICFF: Fresh Ideas

Featured

Last week our trend scouting team attended the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (or ICFF, since that is quite a mouthful) here in the city and we spotted some great color, beautiful materials, and unique ideas for everything from furniture and lighting to outdoor sets and floor coverings. We’ll be highlighting some of our favorite trends this week in a series of posts and we want to kick off with a recap of our favorite fresh ideas.

ICFF Trends.003.jpeg Rounded ends, overstuffed shapes, and soft curves are making their mark on everything from sofas and ottomans to bookshelves and mirrors. Unexpected and organically shaped, these pieces make a sculptural statement while also looking oh-so-comfy.

Reminiscent of building blocks or totems, stacked effects are showing up on furniture and accessories. We love this technique for an opportunity to add dimension or showcase mixed materials.

ICFF Trends.002.jpegA new company we met for the first time is Coquo, who specializes in freestanding, modular kitchen pieces that can accommodate appliances and be unified by whatever countertop you please. Check out the incredible space they created in a New York apartment below. We’ll take one in each finish, please!

ICFF Trends.001.jpegOne last favorite for now, since summertime is upon us, is this great freestanding outdoor kitchen unit in a concrete-look finish. That planter on the end (and those baguettes) had us dreaming of fresh ingredients, icy drinks, and a summer cookout.

Stay tuned for our post on color later this week.
