icff 2007: part three

alright- we made it! the last day of icff coverage. it was a fantastic three days covering everything and running from place to place trying to catch it all. though the show wasn't the best i've ever seen, it was great to see everything in one place and meet some of the designers i've admired this year. so, without further ado: the last day! ["co-pilot" boat-inspired stools by kandice levero. each one has a working compass so you know which way you're faceing when you swivel]

i've written about this piece by charlotte lancelot before but it was great to see it in person this time. sooo much texture, i love it!

ceramics from paige russel- she was definitely one of the standouts at this year's show.

these little ceramic cup and saucer sets had a light that changed colors inside. a little novelty but still pretty cute. part of the designboom mart (which kicked major, major butt this year)

amy adams' cute new frida lamps. i love the handle for easy transport.

fun little hook/cup/tiles at the designboom mart.

MET chandelier- part of the pure austrian design booth.

more beautiful ceramics from paige russell's studio.

this wooden bench had just the right amount of detailing. [designer info coming soon]

one of the highlights of design season was meeting denyse schmidt in person- she's as sweet and lovely as her work. i loved the linens hanging behind her in the photo.

i loved this metallic bicycle-print wallpaper from flavor paper. they're always right on top of the wallpaper game...

this was the first chair i saw at the show- it wouldn't exactly match my home's look but darn was this thing cool. and of course, it was so cool i lost my notes on it. will find asap.

boca grande's storage unit was one of my early favorites- it's finished with auto paint, which gave the piece a nice high gloss.

peter loh showed a seriously beautiful glass table made with legs of reclaimed douglas fir.

lisa albin's cute children's chairs in a new walnut finish.

door hooks and small side table from viable.

i loved these bright pink flor tiles from interface's commercial division.

lush, rich new rugs from emma gardner. i love the way emma plays with colors that are both super saturated and wonderfully muted.

cup and saucer with metallic detailing from areaware.

this rug really had to be seen to be appreciated. my camera can't do it justice. warp and weft's pink carpet was one of my lust-after items this season.

wiggly, borderline alien-like lighting from vitra. very cool but about two steps away from giving me the creeps.

i covered these at milan but i had to show them again- tom dixon's stunning metallic lamps.

i loved these glass tiles from brooklyn glassworks. sorry, my camera really crapped out on this shot.

niche modern showed some great new styles at icff- i love the little pointed-bottom lamps.

adorable cuckoo clocks from progetti italy.

more pieces from the amaridian booth at icff. these rockers and chaise were designed by south african designers- i loved all the vivid red they used.

the cut-outs in tony meredith's slashBackslash chair gave it such a nice, airy feeling.

fun textured lighting from norman copenhagen.

i loved these colorful ceramic tiles from modcraft.

a lovely throwback to days of yore. this lamp was made from an old-school hoover vaccuum cleaner. kitschy, but fun. [artist info coming asap]

icff really was all about babies and kids this year- this convertible crib from industREAL design flips and turns into a chair when your baby is old enough to leave the crib behind.

i loved this simple but sleek seating from ana linares.

lamps and bowls from pure austrian design.

this luxurious wooden table from eros reminded me of golf tees- in a nice way, of course.

all of celery's furniture came with a bamboo mallet for easy construction and disassembly.

snap together glasses from angela at inv/alt design.

cup and saucer clock from umbra.

it was so nice to meet caitlin of rebound designs...

I really loved Caitlin's bags, I thought they were so clever and the color and pattern combinations worked very well. I am still vying for a Nancy Drew.

Paige Russell's pottery is stunning, and a nice use of the medium.

I love those Progetti cuckoo clocks. And Flavor paper wallpaper is the best.

The Amaridian chairs are my favorite. Probably cause I could use a nice lounging one out on my deck. The Celery crib is pretty cool too.

Nice review of ICFF, but I'm disappointed you didn't cover the felt rocks at the amaridian booth. You can barely see them in the upper left corner of your first amaridian photo. The felt rocks looked like the livingstones from France that you covered a year or so ago and were extremely popular.

that chair that you couldn't find your notes on looks like a pierre paulin ribbon chair... so sexy. not sure about the fabric though...

nice coverage of the icff. thanks for all of the photos!

The Umbra "teatime" clock is outrageously cool! Perfect for my tweed curtain town!

Thanks for including my snap cups in your post, Grace! and thanks so much for your thorough coverage of the show... these long posts nicely reflect how enormous the place was.

I covet that MET chandelier. I went to PAD's website and it says that the chandelier is 20 feet across--is that true? Crazy beautiful.

It took me till the 3rd day to escape our booth and walk the show and I have to say I was really impressed with the quantity and quality of everything at this year's ICFF. Hats off to all the designers and exhibitors!
