Each May, New York City serves as host to NYCxDESIGN – a city-wide celebration marked by design exhibitions, installations, trade shows, open studios, launches and more. The festivities historically center around the famed International Contemporary Furniture Fair, with newer, satellite events including such gems as Collective Design Fair among the must sees. In prep for the year ahead, DPAGES & DSHOP hit the pavement both literally and virtually, in order to sift, sort, and curate our way to the greatest pieces on show. Shown here is part one of our finds. We hope you love them as much as we do!
