Heads up design aficionados! The International Contemporary Furniture Fair 2012 kicked off last weekend in NYC and Inhabitat reported live from the Javits Center to bring you the best in green design and innovation from this year's show. We spotted a bunch of fun and fabulous designs - from LED Broom Lamps (exactly what they sound like), to mini-house-shaped closets, skateboard tiles, and Rubik's Cube stools. We'll be publishing breaking design coverage throughout the week, so keep checking back for new updates, and peruse our gallery slideshow for the most recently-uploaded photos that grabbed our attention at ICFF!

How fun is this screenprinted trompe l’oeil Rubik’s Cube lamp/seat by Parvez Taj? In addition to serving double duty, the lamp-cum-stool uses LED illumination, which saves energy.

Urbio magnetic modular holders are an easy way for urban dwellers to create vertical gardens on their walls while also organizing things like pens, tsotchkes and utensils.

We fell head-over-heels in love with Kast Van Een Huis – a Dutch company making these adorable house-shaped closets and storage lockers for kids. Not only are they the cutest thing ever, allowing children to play grownup and “own their own house”, but the materials and finishings are all eco-friendly and non-toxic as well. Stacked in a row of 4 or 5 they make a sweet “street” – perfect for a kindergarten classroom. LOVE!

Emeco teamed up with Philippe Starck for the North American debut of the Broom chair – a cute eco seat made from 90% recycled industrial material.
