Heading to NYC for Design Inspiration

Heading to NYC for Design Inspiration is an exciting trip for Interior Designers, Architects, Builders, and anyone love furniture/accessories/lighting.  ICFF, International Contemporary Furniture Fair, starts May 17th and ends May 20th.  When one has an opportunity to look for an investment to be a business expert in the Furniture industry, ICFF is one of the highly recommended events one should consider attending. 

Here are a few of design inspirations I loved shown at ICFF 2013:
