CCT SPOTLIGHT: NYC DESIGN WEEK

CCT SPOTLIGHT: NYC DESIGN WEEK

New York Design Week was a total blast this year. Our schedule was PACKED, from ICFF to NSS / SURTEX at the Javits Center, to the DDC Furniture opening party, to the Costume Institute at the MET. Oh and we also managed to squeak in a lunch rendezvous with Betsey Johnson at the famed upper east side cafe E.A.T. Betsey had the chicken soup and walked away with a signed copy of our Caroline Cecil Textiles swatch book.

 

For those of you who weren't able to join the fun this year, here's a recap of our faves.

 

 

1. ICFF

 

TOD VON MERTENS

Gorgeous credenzas, desks & low tables that will make any minimalist swoon.

APPARATUS STUDIO

The Apparatus booth was abuzz with people flocking to the minimalist, incense-scented oasis they created the middle of the show. We highly encourage paying a visit to their beautiful site - click here.

3. In conclusion, NYC Design Week was full of inspiring products, brands, and people. After walking the shows we managed to head to the MET which was drawing swarms- many of which were heading downstairs to see the newly unveiled fashion history exhibit, China: Through the Looking Glass.

Oh, and we almost forgot! It simply wouldn't be a trip to NYC without some proper window shopping. Our favorite spring windows are pictured below from Jeffrey & Maison Kitsuné.
