Spring in New York City is a fabulous time – visiting the AD Design Show made it even better. The city that is the most creative hub in the United States according to the Cultural Times report by UNESCO and EY is as always energetic, creative, and with a vibe that makes one wish to be an entrepreneur or at least a creator or a manufacturer or a designer.Having strolled down to Piers 92 & 94 and entered the interior design world immersed visitors to the AD Design Show completely and gave them a chance to feel like a design superstar for a day or two. Between the AD apartment where American design firms presented boldest and sophisticated interior design solutions, the Designer Focus with four unique interiors based on non-client briefs, and the Associative Design with new designs curated by the Portuguese association AIMMP, show attendees’ minds and senses tingled and soared.The onslaught of information, visual and sensory creativity, and the sheer number of great new and innovative ideas was more than impressive. It left many speechless, scratched an itch, and kicked more than one person into gears to get on the design path.The well-organized trade show with so many imaginative installations and beautifully designed booths was a wonderful debut for the upcoming interior design shows in Europe, especially Salone del Mobile in Milan, and the United States – ICFF in New York etc. in April and May.We couldn’t help ourselves but to share some of the luxury living pieces we saw and that made us stop, think, and admire.
