NYCxDESIGN is such an exciting time for design lovers. Every year, Manhattan and Brooklyn become a gathering place for makers and brands from all over the world to showcase their newest collections. Between savvy events like ICFF, WantedDesignSight Unseen Offsite, Brooklyn Designs, and even others, there’s no shortage of designers who are pushing the envelope of creativity, whether they're long-established or just stepping onto the scene. As they're gearing up to show their newest collections for 2018 from May 11-23, we're still daydreaming about last year's exhibits. From alabaster-and-metal serving sets from Anna by Rablabs (the stone comes from the last existing alabaster quarry in Tuscany and is fabricated by fifth-generation Italian artisans), to warm-modern wallpaper prints by the guess-who designers behind Abnormal Anonymous, inspiration abounded at every turn, and we expect this year to be no different. We can't wait to see what's in store, but in the meantime, here are a few of our favorites from last year's shows, starting with the Wheel-Thrown Furniture Collection by Eny Lee Parker, a series of tables whose bases were crafted using terra cotta hand-thrown on a potter’s wheel.
