The New York Gift Fair Begins

It’s late January in New York City and to buyers, editors, and wholesalers that means Gift Show. It’s one of the largest accessory and home design fairs in the country and where I’ll be spending my weekend. I’ve been receiving promotional emails all week from manufacturers trying to lure us to their booths with sneak peeks of their wares for 2009. And it’s working.

I always like to stop by my friend Aviva Stanoff's booth; she's just lovely and a brilliant textile designer.
I know Teroforma for there glassware but now I want to stop by to see their new venture into wooden serveware.
Two's Company always has tons of fun stuff and it's all very reasonably priced.
I can't resist these cut-out votive holders from Tord Boontje for Artecnica.
The Vellum booth is truly luxe and dreamy and they usually serve champagne at the end of the day. I'll be dropping by around sunset.

More to report when I return home next week.
