Today is the last day of the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, the biggest, most important furniture show in the country. Imagine a fashion show, except instead of models dressed up like David Bowie, you have bar carts and $15,000 sofas.
It’s a good time.
The show’s best pieces have made their way onto Instagram feeds and will hit retail showrooms almost immediately. Consider these 12 pieces your #furnituregoals for 2016.
Lawn Chairs by AMLgMATD
The best of 1970s patio design is given an update by Miami Beach duo AMLgMATD. Pick up a set. Matching discouraged.
Pendant Lights by IN.SEK
From IN.SEK, the Dunes lights somehow make concrete feel thoroughly organic. Pair with wood rafters and a table that looks like it could host a Game of Thrones feast.
Patio Furniture by Bend
Monochrome outdoor seating from L.A.’s Bend. Throw some colorful pillows on ‘em for comfort and a splash of color and you’re set.
Abacus by Jeff Goodman
A grandiose, “Where’d you get that?” centerpiece for any large hosting room, Jeff Goodman Studio’s blown-glass Abacus makes for a room divider worthy of a Mad Men set.
Chandelier by Studio Drift
If you need a lighting piece to make a statement, Studio Drift’s rigorously constructed installation of Dandelights — with actual dandelion seeds connected to the power source — should do the trick.
Chair by Alex Bergholm
A throne (or office chair) for 2016 from L.A.-based Axel Bergholm. Says the designer: “A lot of people nowadays work and relax in a lot of different unorthodox seated positions … Peek is 32 inches wide and deep to accommodate movement and flexibility.”
Bench by Hollis and Morris
A commanding low bench for sitting or stacking, shown here in walnut.
Chandelier by Stickbulb
A chandelier without the frou frou from NYC lighting concern Stickbulb. You’re gonna need a large space for this one; it’s nine feet by nine feet.
Vanity by Furniture Guild
A sink saved from delicacy by hardware, hardwoods and copious right angles. Just one of a number of handsome, multi-material bathroom consoles Furniture Guild featured at the expo.
