So long, New York!

We had an incredible time in New York – our schedule was jam-packed full of cocktail parties, CEU events, filming, and furniture shopping at the Architectural Digest Home Show! We kicked off camp the night before the AD Show at Natuzzi Design Studio on Madison Avenue.

Designers mixed and mingled and we all obsessed over Natuzzi’s Revive chair – once you sit down, you really don’t want to get back up! The next morning, design campers shopped the Tile Bar Showroom and reconvened for an informative CEU presentation: 10 Common Designer Contract Mistakes– with two of our fabulous lawyer friends who see the same mistakes all the time. Jerry and Larry shared their wealth of knowledge with our designers so they know how to protect themselves!

And what early morning CEU presentation is complete without a spectacular breakfast spread and bottomless Mimosas?

In a New York minute, we all bolted uptown to Pier 94, where some of our favorite brands like Miele and Interlude premiered some cutting-edge products. We can never get enough of Interludes beautiful case goods and we were completely awed by Miele’s handless kitchenware.

We also discovered a new favorite: Smeg! Retro chic with a modern twist, Smeg, like Fermob (another of our NYC favs), brings a ton of color to the dinning experience. Overall, this was certainly the year for kitchen wear and appliances!

Now, we’re getting geared up for Camp events in our home, Los Angeles, and at High Point Market. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there! Register online for two Design Camp events in High Point – spots are limited!

Echo's #LostInPrint table was perhaps the most conceptually fleshed out, featuring actors both literally lost in the wallpaper print and in the print of their novels.
