Gallery: ICFF 2009: Highlights from the Contemporary Furniture Fair!


We came, we saw… and now we’d like to share with you our favorite green designs from this year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair. This annual furniture fair takes place every year in NYC in May, and is always a great place to spot brilliant new designs and emerging trends in the design world. This year’s show was smaller than usual (due to the soggy economy no doubt), but that made the stellar designs from this year’s show stand out even more.

My favorite booth at the show had to be Pratt’s Design For a Dollar booth, which showcased a number of truly inventive student designs – all made for under $1. I’ve always been a fan of Pratt, but this year the design college upped the ante in innovation, truly proving that Pratt is where it’s at in terms of design education.

– these things are apparently for sick and elderly people who can’t take care of living pets but still want furry companionship. Studies show that pets (and PAROS) help lift the spirits and help people recover from illness.

    Brilliant, Pratt. I love it. Good job to everyone involved. We need more inspiration for innovation using the sustainable materials we have and with less money. I wrote about it here:
