Fresh New Designs from NY Now 2017 Market Show

A drizzling melancholy of Midtown Manhattan was quick to turn into a buzzy vibe at the Javits Center, which for a mere couple of days became a primary destination for the fresh and new design goods presented by exhibitors from around the world. It’s very likely that a quirky notebook from your local design shop or a scented candle you received on your birthday originated — in one way or another — at the NY Now, a trade show where new designs are presented and sold. I decided to cut through the crowds and study the floor myself, picking only the goods that seemed fascinating, inventive and somewhat delightful at a time when our world has become so serious.
