Presented by the Interior Design Magazine and Cindy Allen who was the moderator at our last KOHLER Design Affair in 2018 in Kohler, Wisconsin, the honorees and the winners awaited impatiently for the final cast of the dice on May 20, 2019, at Pier 17, South Street Seaport in New York City.

While the whole city is celebrating contemporary and modern design with NYCxDesign, this recognition of outstanding talent in major areas of design is a special treat for brands, designers, architects, and enthusiasts.

ICFF 2019

The ICFF 2019 trade show from May 19-22, 2019, at the Javits Center in New York, draws from more than 30 years of experience and attracts almost 40,000 attendees. Displays of the best in architecture, interior design, and visual merchandising in the luxury retail space is a focal point even during the design festival that has taken over the city.

ICFF 2019

The latest trends in furniture, lighting, seating, outdoor furniture, art, kitchen and bath designs, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, fabrics, carpets, and flooring as well as materials and home technologies is shown, and competent industry experts share their insights at the booths.

In addition, the ICFF 2019 Talks brought together design visionaries from around the globe to share knowledge and insights in their field of expertise and on their take of the latest fads.

Everything paled, though, with the announcement of the winners of the NYCxDesign Awards that was THE celebration of design per se. Although triple honorees in the categories Tile + Stone, Bath Fixtures, and Kitchen, we left the trophies to friends and friendly competitors this year and concentrated on enjoying the after-party.
