I’ve had the pleasure of attending the International Contemporary Furniture Fair 2011 (ICFF) here in New York over the past couple of days and man, are my feet tired! The fair, which spotlights modern furniture, lighting and accessories, is held in a 145,000 square foot space in the Javits Center and is full of exciting new designs from around the world.

Here are just a couple of my favorite pieces from ICFF that I want to share. Keep an eye out in future posts for more stand-out design:

flavor paper wallpaper

I loved the wallpaper from Flavor Paper in its rich, modern – and often humorous – designs. Flavor Paper now offers a line of digital prints as well that can transferred onto vinyl, latex, or PVC opening up a world of wall covering possibilities.

hooker and co table

It’s hard to grasp how beautiful the reclaimed wood top to this table by Hooker & Co. is in this picture. The hand-sanded, and high gloss quality brought out of the barn wood in this piece takes sustainability to a whole new, sleek level.

parvez taj print

Parvez Taj’s prints feature cityscapes in a watercolored haze. Taj takes artwork that is normally only available to an elite class and makes it accessible to a mass market in prints, canvases, and accessories.

lollipop bunk

Admittedly, I had an outdated idea about the relative attractiveness of Murphy beds. But Clei turned that idea on its head with their functional and fabulous Lollisoft wallbeds which can be hidden away in under two minutes. (I swear! I got a demonstration.)

black + blum barbecue

And last but not least, is this ingenious Hot Pot Barbecue by black+blum. When all the parts are assembled this pot looks like nothing more than an herb planter. But lift off the top and a small grill is revealed sized perfectly for the balcony or terrace.
