This week, the G-Team had a rather fun time browsing the vendors at the New York International Gift Fair, a trade show where furniture, house goods, and other product-vendors come from all over the world to display in the HUGE Javits center. We spent hours walking through, talking to merchants, looking for hot new finds, and sipping some nespresso (yes! Free samples at their booth!). We’ll post some of our favorite finds from the show here. Some of the big trends this year seem to be a lot of natural elements: from plant- and animal- inspired motifs and shapes, natural fibers, furs, and skins, and metal- and ceramic- casting.
I hope you enjoyed our picks, and hopefully we’ll be doing some great business with some of these vendors this year!
