A Sneak Peek at the Upcoming Architectural Digest Home Design Show
The 13th annual Architectural Digest Home Design Show returns to New York City’s Pier 94 from March 20 to March 23, 2014. Open to consumers and trade, the show is perfectly timed to coincide with the first day of spring and the beginning of the outdoor season in the Northeast. Visitors will find innovative designs for indoors and out, including furniture, accessories, art, kitchen and bath products, carpet, stone and tile, lighting, and more. This year’s show features an impressive array of new products, exhibitors, and initiatives.
With NYC as its backdrop, the new Outdoor Pavilion includes product demonstrations and curated lounge spaces from leading brands. While warm weather has prevailed in late March, D’Apostrophe has the solution for any inclement days – a terrace cover from Renson. The Belgian brand prides itself on its long-standing experience in sun protection and ventilation.
Sunbrella’s innovative outdoor area will feature Twisty, the winning concept by FABLAB Design from the 2013 “Future of Shade” contest co-hosted by Architzer. Using a two-tone fabric, the underside color becomes more evident as the blinds are twisted. This play of duality and geometric progression greatly alters the interior and exterior aesthetic and is completely customizable.
If the winter weather continues, visitors can warm up at Stuv’s exhibit of modern wood-burning stoves and fireplaces or step inside American Range’s mobile showroom for a look its latest suite of kitchen appliances. Caliber Range Corporation will be heating up the scene on Saturday, March 22 (3:00 to 4:00 p.m.) as star-architect David Rockwell is joined by chef Jonathan Waxman for an exclusive grilling demonstration. Designed by the Rockwell Group, the “social grill” makes its premier at this year’s show.
Inside, keep an eye out for furnishings from Zachary A. Designs, Brian Boggs Chairmakers, Amalfi Living, and Ligne Roset, as well as outdoor dining solutions from Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet and Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens and more.
