Best of ICFF 2014: Part 3

We continue our trek through ICFF, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, where we hunt the best modern design the industry has to offer for 2014.


Gorgeous West African inspired textiles from Abi Wright Design were exhibited in the British European Design Group’s booth.


We loved these gigantic brass key rings from Areaware. Most of them are bigger than bracelets which means you’ll never lose your keys again!


Bend released some awesome new shelves that have triangular and linear patterns on the neon brackets.


We featured the metallic marble wallpaper from Calico last year and we’re loving the new colors they have now.


David D’Imperio’s linear suspended chandelier looks like a three dimensional topographical map out of anodized aluminum.

Fort Standard presented some really cool faceted, three dimensional lights.


Matter-Made continues their in-house collection with lighting that features circular disc pendants on floor lamps, chandeliers, and table lamps. They also had new pieces of furniture.


mt (masking tape) showed new uses for the ever-popular washi tape. Their line of mt CASA comes in three different widths that let you get super creative on the interior of your home – like covering your walls!


Sauder surprised us and debuted a collection of modern, reasonably priced pieces of furniture that could work well together or on their own.

Garden Glory displayed their range of fancy hoses and hose mounts. Who says you have to have a boring green hose that’s covered in dirt because it’s laying on the ground?


Umbra expands to Umbra Shift which is a series of 14 design oriented objects that were done in collaboration with various young and established talent.


Andrew Neyer had some new lighting and some Watch Clocks that reminded me of the ginormous watch clocks I had on my walls as a kid.


Tools for Everyday Life is a continuing project run by the Northumbria University’s Design Department where they design functional products while exploring the relevancy of materials and processes. This nutcracker is by Danny Duquemin-Shell.
