Last week at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York I saw things that made me laugh, made me want to redecorate and that made me go hmmm. While I’m not including them all here, here are some things that deserve a look.
Garden Glory, a company out of Sweden, says they design things, “For Glamorous People With Dirty Nails.” Their Reindeer hose holder could be the must have accessory for summer gardens.

Since we saw them a few months ago at the Architectural Digest Home Design show, Connecticut-based dbO Home has perfected steam bending, among their other talents, as this new floor lamp design proves.
UK-based Sussex Lighting introduced the Serip collection, based on organic forms, using LEDs.
It still surprises me when I see fabrics that are printed in New England, particularly beautiful ones made of organic cotton, but the hand-screened fabrics from Balanced Design are just that.
Another Rhode Island company, Dunn who make all their furniture and lighting in Rhode Island displayed this amazing chandelier that can be customized in just about every way possible from size to number of lights to finish.
Not in Rhode Island is Detroit Wallpaper, a new company that can custom color grasscloth or even add a pattern on top of grasscloth. Proudly made in Detroit, Michigan.
