shelter-spotting: what we loved at the nyigf, part 1

Katie D. and I wondered past the construction zones on Manhattan’s far west side last week to take a cruise around the annual International Gift Fair. It’s two enormous floors of everything from bedding, tabletop, stationary, and more Christmas tchotchkes than you ever dreamed possible in one place. It’s also a place where some of our favorite home-goods designers turn out to show off the newest additions to their catalogs — all the things hitting store shelves in the next couple of months. We started working on our wish-list for the coming season. Here are some of the things that we love most:

Faux cowhide placements, $20 each, from Chilewich, available now on their site. Can’t wait to serve a vegetarian feast on these!

Candlewick covers from Pine Cone Hill. Reminds us of the chenille bedding our grandmas had and we can’t wait to get. Available in five colors, shown here in Dove.


New, vibrantly-colored indoor-outdoor rugs from Dash & Albert.


Insanely cool dinosaur bedding from Dwell Studio. Do we have to be a kid to have?

More NYIGF picks coming soon!
