Inspiration from the 2014 Architectural Digest Home Show in NYC

The AD Home Show 2014

Interiors

Every year Architectural Digest hosts the home show at Pier 94 in Manhattan. It’s one of the most inspirational design events that I attend, and yesterday didn’t disappoint me at all! This is where you find the newest products by some of the best designers in the world. Though I am gonna take a minute to boast that NYC local designers have a heavy presence in the world of design and I am proud to be friends with many of these talents. Nice Job NYC Designers!!!

Basically I thought I might blog a bunch of cool pictures that I took at the show. I think I should let everyone know that the show has 2 sections to it. The first being larger companies who produce everything from unique tiles for floors and walls to refrigerators, furniture, fire places…. you get the idea. These are all the new lines that are soon to be in a store near you.

The second section is called “made” and it consists of unique artisan’s that produce decor, lighting, wall paper and other items which probably will not be in a store near you. But if you read our blog you would probably love to have some of these creations in your own home.  That is why I will try to make sure to list some of the names of the companies at the end of this post so that you might check out their sites and beautify your spaces, but you can always go to the Architectural digest site to find a list of exhibitors.

The photos are primarily from an exhibit area where interior designers use samples of products from different exhibitors to create luxurious rooms.

That's me if front of this chandelier bursting with Cherry Blossoms!

I loves the backs of the chairs in this room and the color scheme was so soft and pretty. The portraits on the walls were super bazaar half man half woman images.

Awesome table with moss growing down the center of it.

I would love to have this as a picnic table. One of the coolest things is the way it is sunken into the ground.

This was such an imaginative design!

Cool video images projected onto the walls and having all the different colored chairs was so playful.

Hope that you enjoyed the behind the scenes look of the 2014 Architectural Digest Home show. I am gonna list and link to some things that I thought were very cool and if you get a chance check them out. Everyone loves unique things and many of the people making this work are emerging talents or lifelong artists from the U.S.  As someone who understands the etiquette of artist exhibitions I did not take photos of people’s work in their booths but rather talked to the artists and took their contact info so that I could share with you the websites of the things I liked!
