New York International Gift Fair - Day 1 of your "tour"

I spent the weekend walking the aisles at the always, it was amazing! Attendance at the NYIGF is to the trade only (ie: designers, shop owners, retailers, etc). If something peaks your interest you'll have to find access to it through the trade, as most of these companies do not sell directly to the public. Check back daily this week, as each day I will post special items that caught my attention. I hope you enjoy your "visit" to the NYIGF via Hamptontoes!

I love this chair! It is aesthetically appealing, but also very comfortable (yes, it truly is)! It would be perfect with a throw draped over it to cover the back and the seating portion, but still exposing the frame. I also see this chair around a rustic, wooden table...that combination would be amazing! And, of course it looks good on its own! This chair is produced by Peddlers Home Design (you can email them to find a retailer in your area). 
I had to give it a try for passed!

Jonathan Adler now has a Jonathan Adler Junior line of amazing furniture and furnishings just for little children! Look at the images below:  the gorgeous Junior Lampert sofa is a show stopper, the pink velvet Junior Templeton chair is divine, the letter pillows made of Alpaca wool are chic, the zebra print rugs in youthful colors are perfect for a little one's room, the giraffe sconces/lamp are whimsical, the elephant lamp with the finial being the tip of the elephant's trunk is a conversation piece, the needlepoint zodiac pillows are fun and of course, the shoe that is a butter dish for a whimsical touch at the dinner table! Check out for a retail location near you...happy shopping!  

These lighting fixtures are so striking! I like them all! 

Looking for a "gold" chair that is traditional, yet with freshness that says modern day? I found it - I am loving this chair!  It's by Manglam Arts which is available to designers and retail. 
Come back tomorrow for more exciting finds!

Looks like you had a ball! I'm loving that wire chair, a simple flattened cushion would be great. And I'm a sucker for Jonathan Adler, so I'll take one of everything!
