The Best of Pier 94 NYIGF, August 2011.

Like I said yesterday, I love/hate NYIGF, case in point, at around 4 PM I literally started to get feverish and achey and felt like I had the flu. The gift fair will do that to you. (Also, I skipped a lot of feedings. All of them, all day. Is that why? Is this TMI?)

Anyway, here are some of my favorite things from around the show:

Best faux room: Loved this vignette from Festoni Home.

I loved this red chair, also from Festoni, and the Cy Twombly style art… made by the owners husband! 

Most fun textiles, Design Legacy: 

I bought some of these from the “Pagoda Collection” for Cookie’s room.

Fun reclaimed furniture, Studio Salvage Crafts:

Woven leather rag rug. I need you: 

Best new etagere, World’s Away. 

It looks like the one by Pheobe Howard that I tried to hunt down and cost 6K.

From Julian Chichester, these swing arm industrial pendant sconces. Great for a room with no overhead lighting.

I loved these little drawings of the Kachina warriors by Natural Curiosities. 

Also by Natural Curiosities, these black, white and hand silver leafed graphic patterns. 

This company calls themselves “The American Hermes”, Ceramics by Waylande Gregory.

I LOOOVED these stools. Amazing. 

My favorite Bone InLay piece, by Manglam Arts. LOVE this for a bathroom, or guest room.  Marble bowl by Made Goods. I actually bought their black and white stool that I LOVED last time. 
Dransfield and Ross goes boho: 

And…. that’s all for right now, Im going to look through my photos again.

But this is the stuff that caught my eye. I’ve been to the show so many times that if it isnt new it doesnt even register to me.

Have a good day everyone!

    Great pillows!

    The rest of this comment has nothing to do with your post. I started reading this blog because of your hilarious RHOBH posts so I’m writing to see if you’ve heard the news…Taylor’s newly ex-husband Russell was found dead!

    I feel so bad for their daughter. I’m sure Taylor is crushed but…this next season is going to be one for the history books.

  4. I really love all your picks. I cannot wait to see anything new from Worlds Away.

  5. That etagere is amazinggg! Thanks for sharing all of your goodies

  6. Thanks for being our eyes! As always, you pick great things to show. xo xo

  7. So glad you went for me !!! Thanks for sharing and sorry you felt unwell- it’s what these huge fairs do to me too.

  8. I LOOOOOOVE that first blue painting. It would look amazing with one of yours in the same room.

    Also, that gold thing is to DIE. But here’s a question for you: do you think this gold trend is going to end anytime soon? I’ve been a silver metal girl for so long, I’m scared to jump ship only to find out that my stuff will soon be dated. I know you have lots of amazing gold stuff (including your gorgeous eating utensils) so I’m wondering where you fall on the issue. These are the things that are keeping me up at night.
