WHAT: The Architectural Digest Design Show (at Pier 94) is a four-day luxury design destination for extraordinary residential and hospitality finds from over 400 brands. From furniture, accessories, lighting, and art, to kitchen, bath, building products, hardware and flooring, the show boasts offerings by both independent makers and established manufacturers. The experience includes insider access to seminar programs headlined by design world luminaries, as well as exciting culinary demonstrations, stunning installations, and VIP industry events, such as DIFFA’s DINING BY DESIGN (co-located at neighboring Pier 92).
On the Show floor:
MADE: Now in its 10th successful year, the juried MADE section is a resource for handcrafted, often limited edition or one-of-a-kind furnishings, accessories, and art pieces. More than half of the 2017 exhibitors are new to the show this year. Exhibitors include the nationally recognized designs of Pelle, Patrick Weder Design, Fort Standard, and Vetro Vero, as well as the emerging talents of JM Szymanskii, Topher Gent, A Space, Christopher Kurtz, John Sheppard, and more.
SHOPS: The show offers a retail boutique of décor, gifts, tabletop accessories, objets d’art and more, available for immediate purchase from brands including Owen+Fred, Golden Doors Artisanal Food + Skin Care, Konsuk, Christophe Pourny, Rikumo, Big Picture Farm and American Design Club.
