Friday evening kicks off our weekend with an infor­mal meet and greet in SoHo.
Satur­day features a whirl­wind tour of maker spaces and galleries in Red Hook, Brook­lyn.
Sunday, TFS has part­nered with The James Renwick Alliance to produce an inspir­ing event at this year’s ICFF. We have teamed up with design writer Adrian Madlener to iden­tify select exhibitors — inde­pen­dent talents and boutique manu­fac­tur­ers — pushing the enve­lope in craft-led furni­ture, light­ing, and acces­sory design. From mate­r­ial exper­i­men­ta­tion to rein­ter­preted arti­sanal tradi­tions, this New York furni­ture fair surveys contemporary craft.

This event will include an intro­duc­tion from ICFF brand direc­tor Odile Hainaut, followed by a guided tour of the show floor led by Adrien Madlener, The Furni­ture Soci­ety’s Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Monica Hampton, and Inde­pen­dent Curator and TFS Board member, Kathryn Hall-Asaro.

Join us for this action-packed series of events, provid­ing atten­dees unpar­al­leled insight and access to some of today’s most promising makers.
