Three days was not nearly enough time to explore everything in store at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show at Pier 94 in New York. Roaming the rows of the massive structure, filled to the brim with a seemingly endless array of the most exceptional products in home design and art, visitors were provided with all the design inspiration their hearts could possibly desire. Kitchen and bath appliances; carpets, tile and wood; tables and chairs; artwork and even stairs were on display at the show from businesses large and small. The exhibit included a MADE section, which featured artisan works by individual artists and designers. The objects and furnishings in this section were often one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces and it was great to hear the unique stories behind the absolutely stunning products – straight from the designers themselves! Design Industries Fighting Aids (DIFFA)’s Dining by Design section of the show was also a huge hit. The ingeniously creative installations on display at the exhibit created a breathtaking environment of color and light that was thrilling to walk through. Design individuals and institutions, such as Jonathan Adler, HBA, Ali Tayar, Ralph Lauren, and the New York School of Interior Design, among others, collaborated to create inspiring table settings, which were eventually used for DIFFA’s annual Gala Dinner. With all the different pavilions, designer consultations and other programming, there was no shortage of opportunities to learn and new products to discover at the show, which proved to be a great success! Here’s a look at some of my favorite displays at the show:
