The Contemporary Furniture Fair really showed its colors


Jonathan Adler for Kohler
Jonathan Adler and Kohler are bringing color to the kitchen in a unique and fun way.  The brightly colored cast iron sinks are both nostalgic and forward thinking, fresh and functional.



Bright, saturated, bold color is transforming otherwise sterile spaces.  The International Contemporary Furniture Fair or ICFF brought with it a lot of color on an otherwise dreary rainy day.

The pixelated wallpaper pattern by Flavor Paper is definitely not for the faint of heart.  I would love this in a niche, in the back of a bookcase, or as an accent wall.  Designed by Simon Page, Flavor Paper will scale it proportionately to your space.  Their motto is, "Good design excites."  I concur.



How cute are these cubbies by Kast van ten Huis?  They actually resemble the little canal houses where they are made in the Netherlands.



I can say from personal experience, these funky chairs from innit are really comfortable.  They come in 11 colors from recycled material.



Koket features a highly edited, seductive collection influenced by fashion, fauna, design, and the decorative arts.  Their pieces tend to stop you in your tracks.



Color reform rugs, rag rugs, silk and wool rugs, they are "color proud."  I loved the original graphic rugs by Sonya; works of art in and of themselves.  Sculpture for your floor.




Polart makes furniture for indoors or out.  Team that with the illuminated accent pieces I've been seeing and you've got yourself a party.



It's a really exciting time in design.  I am always amazed at the creativity around me.  New materials and clever uses for the old.  Upcycling and recycling, inventiveness and ingenuity all converge, and when it does ~ magic happens.

    contemporary furniture mostly makes use of recyclable materials like glass. Modern techniques like injection molding techniques are used while creating contemporary pieces of furniture
