The 2016 installment of the venerable contemporary furnishings show ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) takes place the 14-17 May 2016 at New York City’s Javits Center. Billed by the organizers as a must see ‘high end luxury’ exhibition, this year’s show is back with a wide ranging selection of rug and carpet styles from some of North America’s (and beyond) premier brands. The Ruggist will be on hand to gauge for not only himself, but for you, which carpets stand-out and which truly live up to the luxury moniker. Here’s a peek at a just few we intend to see.
Rarely do the carpets from Warp & Weft disappoint and this is no exception. A finalist in the inaugural NYC x DESIGN Awards sponsored by Interior Design and ICFF this carpet is definitely worth seeing just after….
Amy Helfand returns to ICFF after a several year hiatus to debut her new ‘Be Good Do Good’ Collection. This new work refines her aesthetic by paying homage to elements of traditional Persian carpet design. The Ruggist will be based out of Amy’s stand at ICFF so be sure to stop by if I don’t see you first.
The ‘House of Kath‘ brings the utterly mesmerizing ‘Spacecrafted’ to ICFF with this warm colour palette version entitled ‘Space 5’. It must be seen in person as photography does not do justice to these carpets.
The patchwork carpets presented by Creative Touch are without doubt the best in class. The result of an intensive twenty-six (26) step process they are meticulously finished with every attention paid to the details.
Apadana is showing a selection of their usually impressive overdyed and distressed vintage carpets, such as this eye catching one in red. As one-of-a-kind carpets you never know what you might find. Stop by and have a look.
The rugs from Shore Rugs aren’t something normally seen here on The Ruggist, but the colours are inviting and the woven silicone cord is most intriguing. We’re really looking forward to finding out more!
