NYIGF 2011: A Few of My Favorite Things

by habituallychic

02 . 01 . 11
While there was no new vendor at the NYIGF that knocked me off my feet, there were a lot of great new products and a lot fun colors.  The new backgammon table from oomph, above, is already a hot ticket item.  It doesn’t come with a top but interior designer Elizabeth Bauer suggested covering it with a glass or clear plexi top so it can serve double duty as a dining table.  Don’t forget that while all the vendors are wholesale, they will also sell to designers.  Just make sure to ask if there is a minimum.  You can usually find a list of retails stockists on their websites if you can’t purchase directly.

This console from Lamshop comes in 16 colors and a few different sizes.

Chelsea Textiles started with the Gustavian furniture and has branched out into mid-century and lacquered tables that I absolutely love!   

More colorful tables at Worlds Away.

    I do hope you consider creating or having a booth of your own gifts…with your eyes, surely you must have something up your sleeve to share.
    Looks like color continues to be the curious George.

    Thank you so much for the lovely pictures! The bright colors are excactly what is needed for this time of year. I’m completely head-over-heels for the Jonathan Adler dresser – how perfect would that be in a little boy’s room? Playful, but not too childish: every parent’s dream.

    Love the variety you showcased here, Heather! Incredible occasional tables, pillows, vases…did you come away inspired?

    Hi Heather, I couldn’t help but notice that there was a lot of lacquered furniture. I had thought lacquer was waning, but from what your eye was drawn to, it looks like it is still going strong? Thoughts? Thanks, Mary

    Love Julian Mejia’s use of colors and patterns and remember the pillows he did last year for Barney’s. So bright and fun! Thanks for stopping by – it was wonderful to see you!

    I was dying to go but couldn’t take the time this year. So happy to see it through your camera! Keep ’em coming!

    Yes, the rainbow was born!

    I’m so ready to add so many colors in my home. I’m going to start with pillows and throws, but I’m thinking about a bright colored side table too. You’ve got me inspired!
