Replay: ICFF

I’m happy to say that my first ICFF was quite an inspiring one. It was great to see some of the best exhibitors from BKLYN DESIGNS again, as well as a surprising amount of indoor/outdoor furniture, a few really huge pieces of wood, and a lot of delightfully quirky pieces. I even enjoyed the hyper-saturated blue floor that filled aisle after aisle.

Perhaps the extra bold hue under my feet made me more aware of other great uses of color at the fair, because these are three pieces that still stand out in my mind:

Christian Woo’s new Covert Line featured simple wooden storage with clean lines and pops of turquoise blue or lime green.

Boca Do Lobo’s bold Soho collection combined several diverse colors, materials, and eras. The Soho sideboard (the line’s namesake) pulls all these disparate elements together beautifully and successfully acts as an anchor for the rest of the gorgeous but potentially schizophrenic pieces.

Qlocktwo looked like a word search, but really it just tells the time without the numbers. Whether that’s a relief or a disappointment, you certainly can’t deny the uniquely sleek whimsy of this piece. Qlocktwo is currently available in 10 languages and in 6 festive colors.

May 17’s daily design idea is color can instantly add an appealing quirk to a project, which may just be the distinguishing element that you need. If you aren’t convinced, check out the touristed neighborhood of La Boca.
