ICFF Weekend!

Laura and Letecia attended the 26th annual ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair), also known as North America’s platform for global design, which took place at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York two weekends ago. They had only good things to say about the fair, and raved about all the amazing pieces they saw. We were pleased when they provided plenty of pictures.

More than 29,000 interior designers, architects, retailers, designers, manufacturers, representatives, distributors, and developers attended white more than 500 exhibitors from around the globe displayed contemporary furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath for residential and commercial interiors. Laura and Letecia has a blast and look forward to attending again next year!
