Throughout the year, Architectural Digest’s market department scours showrooms, stores, fairs, and design centers for the best new products on the market and then brings its favorites to AD PRO. This week was an especially busy one: Between the bi-annual NY Now at the Javits Center and the brand-new Shoppe Object fair at Metropolitan West, New York was full of design inspiration and brimming with fresh finds. Associate Market Editor Madeline O’Malley shares her favorites.
btw Ceramics, Shoppe Object
Los Angeles–based btw Ceramics showed a ranged of exciting pieces, from dinnerware to planters. Its “Wacky” collection is my personal favorite, full of wild and crazy color.
Amanda Lindroth, NY Now
Amanda Lindroth brings a beachy glamour to everything she does, and her booth at NY Now was no exception. Between her launching a collection of textiles and debuting new pieces in her line of wicker tabletop, Lindroth’s style was a show standout.
Domada Designs, Shoppe Object
Houston-based Domada Designs has a completely original concept: transforming antique and vintage rugs into cowhide shapes.
Fredericks and Mae, Shoppe Object
Fredericks and Mae showed an absolute party of a booth. From its candy-colored fireplace matches to its vibrant dart boards, the entire company can be summed up in one word: fun.
Doing Goods, NY Now
Amsterdam-based brand Doing Goods joined the U.S. market for the first time at this year’s show. Its booth was filled with treasures, from cheeky egg cups to animal-shaped rugs. As implied by its name, the company works with various charities around the world to produce and source their products.
Isabel Halley Ceramics, Shoppe Object
Blue and white motifs are always a ceramics classic, and Isabel Halley gave that idea a fresh, modern look with her new pieces.
Business & Pleasure, NY Now
The sun is always shining at Australian brand Business & Pleasure’s booth. Its striped umbrellas and outdoor lounge chairs are pure escapism.
Workaday Handmade, Shoppe Object
Workaday Handmade showed a wide range of ceramics, from tabletop to lighting. Its terra cotta-shaded lamp was a particular standout, as was its colorfully striped footed planters.
Fort Standard’s product line, FS Objects, is always at forefront of well-made, smart-looking pieces, and this year was no different. The brand introduced pastel colors to its ceramics, adding an exciting pop.
Sir | Madam, Shoppe Object
Brooklyn’s Sir | Madam would give anyone inspiration to buy a country house. Its historically inspired line ranges from wooden candlesticks to minimalist ceramics in earthy hues.
