It is said that the fashion industry is excitingly cut throat, but whoever said that has never experienced the interior design side of the coin. From editors who write & publish the spaces, to the vendors who push their high-end products, to the actual designers themselves; the world of high end interiors can definitely be intense. So when you take some of the top and most influential people involved in this competitive field, and stick them all in one building filled with showrooms of all types, it can only be the recipe to inspire and influence a young designer just starting off her life in this design savvy world.
This past Thursday I ventured across the river to the What’sNew, What’s Next event held at the New York Design Center. The fifteen story building was bustling with women and men dressed to the nines and itching to hear the various speakers, see the immense amount of new and beautiful products, and- of course- socialize with their industry peers. And then there was me, absolutely captivated by the entire event and loving the experience of seeing all these brilliant talents speak and all the new products coming out.
Although I took a few photos of the event itself and of some of my favorite pieces/instillations in the various showrooms; I had a great time wandering around and seeing what’s new and what’s next.
