ICFF 2011: Indie designers stand out at furniture fair

May 21, 2011 |  5:59 am


At the 2011 International Contemporary Furniture Fair, the nation's most important showcase for modern home decor, independent designers and artisanal producers stood out from the Javits Center pack. The New York convention center floor was filled with pieces such as, clockwise from top left: a chair from Akmd collection, a collaboration of Michael Dreeben and Ayush Kasliwal; a Sami Hayek table in the style of traditional black Oaxacan pottery; Ameico's Trash Me lamp, a Victor Vetterlein design made of paper pulp reminiscent of egg-carton material; and Hayek's Mestizo credenza, which combines traditional Mexican bead work with a modern glossy red finish.

Cindy Dampier reports from New York with the full assessment of the 2011 International Contemporary Furniture Fair.
