Your tour of the NYIGF

The New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) is a to-the-trade show where vendors showcase their offerings to interior design and retail related individuals. I attended the show over the weekend and was eager to share some of my finds with you.

Go Home Ltd. is a company that always gets my attention for fun and interesting products for the home. This horse head sculpture is an artistic creation that immediately reminded me of the Hamptons. What a whimsical nod to the equestrian culture on the East End!
Asian Art Imports is a "green" company that uses reclaimed and sustainable woods for their creations, including their version of a horse's head. Do you like the shadow that this piece of art creates?  
JM Piers creates these gorgeous trays! This trio storage set is such a chic and stylish way of stowing necessities. These elegant containers could be used in a bathroom for such items as cotton balls, Q-tips and elastic hair bands or in an office for paper clips, staples and business cards.  
Look at the beautiful choice of colors and the various sizes. Where oh where, would I not use one of these sturdy trays in my home?   
Mariska Meijers creates high quality pillows that are vibrant and certain to zhush up any neutral decor. Her silk pillows are truly remarkable, not only visually, but to the touch. A top notch product indeed!
Markisa launched her new scarf line at the show. I think this plum and chic yellow piece would be fabulous paired with a plum wool coat this season.
I have spread the word about Dunes and Duchess candlelabras and lamps in previous posts. It is their passion, their American made quality products and the uniqueness of their offerings that I find attractive. At the show they launched their floor lamp and table, adding to their product line-up. 
The Duchess is as nice as she is stunningly beautiful!
Do you want a gorgeous floral arrangement to greet you when you walk into a room? Regardless of season, Diane James Designs has an "in season" beautiful floral to suite your needs creating ease of  living for clients with discerning eyes.  
I hope you have enjoyed your visit to the NYIGF!

I lived for many years in Sag Harbor, the little green Gingerbread house on Main Street. I had a shop, Great Find's on Main Street in East Hampton. I loved going to the New York Gift Show and miss it very much. Thanks for a peak into what I have been missing. Richard from My Old Historic House.
