The next morning Crystal and I were treated to an amazing tour of the New York Design Center by Alix and Alana! They are so passionate about this incredible building and for the designers who work with them. They inspired me on so many levels and even from Boston I am looking forward to following their new projects. If you are a designer in the New York area be thankful for these ladies, you are very lucky to have such a great team looking out for you!
There are so many pieces to fall in love with at the NYDC but when I turned the corner and saw the back of this sofa....I could have passed out! It is just gorgeous! I was so quick to grab my camera that I forgot to write down which showroom this was in.
Next we went over to ABC Home and Carpet since we had heard a lot of buzz about this building. These are a few of the pieces I fell in love with! The sofa with its extra high back, deep cushions and incredible tufting was spotted, could be perfect for a new client project.
Next up was this rug pattern from the amazing Madeline Weinrib! Isn't it just fantastic? The deep raspberry had me dreaming of pairing it with a gray sofa, maybe similar to the one above!
One other person I met and had a fantastic chat with was Anne of The City Sage, unfortunately in the midst of our in depth blogging conversation there was no thought of taking pictures!
This is yet another example of stepping away from the computer and taking the time to meet your blogging/twitter friends in person! Believe me you will be so happy you did!
Thanks to all the ladies I met on my quick trip to NYC, it was one incredible day!
