This top North America’s platform for global design will, once again, map the newest frontier of what’s best and what’s next in the design industry and that’s why Best Interior Designers could’ pass the opportunity to tell you 5 Reasons you should attend this event!
1 – It’s in New York! – This one is probably one of the strongest reasons! The ICFF is held in one of the major cities on the planet, where design, ideas and elegance are always flowing and changing. In the intervals of the fair you can see some amazing show at Broadway, stroll the iconic Central Park, drive by the frenetic Times Square, shop at the some of the most prestigious fashion and design shops on 5th Avenue, visit some of the most amazing museums and galleries of the city, pay your respects at the World Trade Center Meorial, experience an incredible meal at some of the best restaurants in the entire planet or visit some of the most iconic landmarks of New York, like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty.
2 – It’s Part of a Bigger Design Celebration, The NYCxDesign– The ICFF 2018 is held in concordance with the popular and prestigious NYCxDESIGN, New York City’s annual celebration of design! This event usually attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees and designers from across the globe and this year won’t be any different. Like design itself, NYCxDESIGN is everywhere, with events taking place across the city’s five boroughs. This year, NYCxDESIGN will host more than 150 events in several areas and will host several Parties and will give out several Awards.
3 – It’s An Event With More Than 800 Exhibitors – Being a place of excellence to showcase high-end furniture brands, ICFF New York will welcome more than 800 exhibitors coming from all over the world.

Those exhibitors will include all the brands from the Covet Group, the major luxury Group from Portugal that will display the best of its brands at Booth #1719 of ICFF.
4 – Terry Crews and Some Top Brands and Personalities Will Present Their Amazing Collections – Terry Crews is no stranger to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York, and the actor has been supporting and attending ICFF for quite some time now. This time, Crews will once again be one of the event’s hosts, at the same time he endorses his stunning furniture collection line, launched last year. He won’t be the only top figure present at this event. Famous designers and prestigious brands like Jenny Wu, MGG Studio, Nikolas Bentel Studio or Kevin Wilcoxson Studio.
5 – An Incredible Silent Auction For a Good Cause – For the first time in the furniture fair’s history, a silent auction will be held in memory of the late Anna Hernandez.
