ICFF 2008 ~ planning ahead- 05.13.08

icff2008.jpgICFF is right around the corner as the last few posts have shown, and with so many things to see and do, its hard to know where to start… so here’s a roundup of resources as well as my personal shortlist that i’m trying to pick between… all you need is on the next page! Perhaps i’ll see you in NY!

p.s. there’s no way i can probably hit everything i want to (especially Monday, since we’re doing a little publishers meet up thing) ~ if you happen to go to some amazing parties/shows/etc, feel free to take incredible pics to share with the rest of us!

hope you brought your helicopter, that’s a lot of walkin

Mars Made, a new Boston-based company that designs high-end, contemporary game room furniture, will debut two of their new billiards tables at the ICFF show at booth #202. Stop by to check them out and play some pool!

Visit: www.mars-made.com

----- Anna Casey 14.05.08 11:15

Thanks for the list (and list of lists)!

If you have time…definitely try and stop by the TOTO event (25 Mercer)on Monday, where we’ve done some more “bottle” work.

Sounds “uber” fun! ;)

I was just there last week and was impressed with Area iD: www.areaid.com

It’s a small shop on Elizabeth St specializing in mid-century style furniture but I’d recommend it. Some of the chairs and sofas had fake leather that felt nicer than the real thing.
