It's become the much anticipated yearly event. Once a year, during the third week in March, The Architectural Digest Home Design Show sponsored by Architectural Digest and The New York Times, take over pier 94 overlooking the Hudson River. Members of the trade and homeowners flock to this great event to learn about the latest and greatest in home design and technology - it's where art, science and technology come together for the home.
This year color and design seemed to take front and center stage in all areas of the home from kitchens and baths to home accessories. Having attended for several years now, I've noted subtle changes from year to year, some for the better, some not. Last year, I left a bit disappointed and felt the event had turned more into a kitchen and bath show. This year, I have seen notable improvements in the layout of the show making the floor much easier to navigate - from the placement of the coat check to additional seating for weary feet. While the kitchens seemed to take center stage, I was glad to see more furniture again this year. As always I love the MADE section - the smaller artisans, and the addition of smaller home accessories into the mix.
Below is just a sampling of some of the many and varied finds.
