New York City’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), now in its 26th year, is a highly anticipated event for locals and out-of-towners alike—and this year certainly did not disappoint.

Attendees at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center had their work cut out for them, with 629 exhibitors (18 percent more than last year) spanning 165,000 square feet of bustling tradeshow floors. Over 31,000 guests took on that explorers’ challenge, each with their own eye for the new and delightful. From household knickknacks to ready-to-assemble hospitality furnishings to ultra-luxe atelier treasures, there was something for everyone. Here are some of the brands and products that caught our attention.
