As most of the world is in a relaxing August flux, thousands of designers, brands, and industry specialists have gathered in the massive halls of the Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan for NY NOW summer design market — to showcase the latest and the most interesting from the world of home decor, stationery, and gifts. Traditionally, I walked the miles of the exhibition halls to pick new and fascinating brands and products.
