ICFF 2010: Day 4

This is a four-part series documenting each day at ICFF, so come follow me along on my adventures! Warning: these posts are long. I took over 150 photos every day, and it was very hard to narrow it all down, so there will be more spotlight posts coming over the next few weeks. Read all ICFF posts here.

Day 4 was my last day at ICFF and I didn’t have too many more aisles to attack. It was a nice, easy day.

I dropped by the Pratt booth, where I enjoyed these “Shuffle Foam Rests” by Ryan Thistle. They come as a pair and can be placed underneath chair feet to adjust the chair to a more comfortable position. I also liked the tire twine project called “Happy Hardcore” by Fernanda Fajardo.

I checked out Kerf’s booth, and played around with some of their drawers and cabinets.

I met up with Tsunami Glassworks and gushed about my love for their heart vase. They shared a booth with Rollout, whose new wallpaper is awesome (stay tuned) and Zac Ridgely, whose sketchy art-meets-function lighting pieces (pictured above) were beautiful. Also in the same booth was Dan Planko, who creates trophy heads from reclaimed and repurposed materials.

I finally met my Twitter buddy Maybelline Te, who works with new brand Snug Furniture. The wallpaper in their booth was awesome — I found out it was made by Black Crow Studios.

I didn’t stop and talk to anyone at Box Kitchen, but the more I think about their booth, the more I regret not doing so.

I got a peek at Lladró’s newest collection. All my life, I always felt like Lladró was grandma stuff, but I totally dig it now. I think its because they work with Jaime Hayon.

This lamp by Jordi Mila tripped me out. It went almost to the floor and then sprung back up again.

I fell in love with these custom textiles by ElasticCo. They’re known for those Google search pillows, but I really loved the handmade curtains.

I also met the ladies behind Isotrope Design who we featured last year, and was able to get a better idea of how amazingly useful and clever their sculptural pieces are. This piece can store just about anything from records to magazines to wine bottles and you can change the configuration by dropping the panels int0 different slots.

I hung out with Urbancase and Modkat for about an hour before wrapping things up for the day.

Before I left NYC, I had a lovely dinner with the ladies of ShelterPop and DIY Life.
