Innovation was back and better than ever at the 2012 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF)! We were lucky enough to spend several hours, or should we say days, at New York’s Javits Center and had the opportunity to touch, try and test drive the furnishings and learn the latest trends in lighting, wallcovering and more! There were over 500 exhibitors from more than 30 countries at the show, but we’ve managed to narrow down our favorites! Here are a few of our top picks as well as a look as some of ICFF’s Editors Awards winners!
