  • ICFF 2009

    As usual, here's a smattering of photos from ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) this weekend. Overall I think there was a pretty good selection of new items to get excited about (I'll refrain from personal commentary on how the economic climate is affecting the design world) and it was interesting to see how designers are playing with materials/colors/finishes. I'll do my best to post items individually as they become available for purchase online; hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. More pics below.
