Poppin’ Fresh Finds at New York’s ICFF

Every April, Europe throws a huge furniture party in Milan (Salone del Mobile) where 348,000 design junkies gather to find out what’s hot, and what’s not. One month later, New York answers in kind with its own smaller version, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).

We’ll cover the Milan show in our fall issue of Boston Home, but below we give you the upshot of New York right here, right now, even before the New York Times. Bottom line: color is out unless it’s “green,” and wallpaper is hot, hot, hot. So here’s our new, improved, post-ICFF wish list (with a wink):

1. Bad Table by Judson Beaumont of Straight Line Designs.

2. The Huggable Light by Diana Lin Design

3. Milk Gone Bad Table Lamp by Anatomic Factory

4. Gino the Dog Bowls by Gaia & Gino

5. Lojo Ball (use as a seat or ottoman)

6. Delight wool felt pendant lamp by Mixko
