NY Now 2018

I hadn’t been to the gift show for a couple of years so I decided it was time for a revisit. If you have never been, it is difficult to explain the vast enormity of this venue. I didn’t really have much of an organized agenda, and I’m sure missed many booths I would have liked, but let me share some of my favorite finds from the NY Now 2018 Spring edition.

Lindroth design lanterns at NY Now 2018You have probably seen Amanda Lindroth‘s island inspired products – they have been a hit every since she launched the line (you may remember seeing my fun summer bags here and here). Her booth was hopping with tons of interest for Lindroth Design’s Bahamian chic style. These Harbour Island rattan and wood lanterns come in a variety of sizes and look great single or grouped. For smaller lighting opportunities, there are her hurricanes.

And these wicker covered thermoses are a fantastic hostess gift and would be a much appreciated accessory in any guest room.

And I have to thank Amanda for my next find – Business & Pleasure. This young Australian company has come up with such clever and beautiful beach focused products. Their beach tents are UV protected, water resistant, great looking and most importantly, easy to assemble. Oh and did I mention it is all collapsible and folds up into a convenient carrying bag?

They also make a range of retro chic umbrellas of UV water and mold resistant canvas. The wood poles are eco friendly (they use a World Forestries certified producer) and the trim is of all natural unbleached cotton.

The umbrellas also come with carryable pouches and a full one year replacement warranty of parts and assembly!

I was delighted to finally meet the ladies from Serendipity Delhi in person. With an acclaimed lifestyle concept store in Delhi, founder and designer Kuldeep Kaur has been designing home textiles and furniture for over 20 years.

I don’t search out many children’s products but this fun bedding from Amsterdam based company SNURK (Dutch for snore) was hard to miss.

Matouk is always a stop for me at the show. Their spring collection includes a new colorway, Tigereye, for the popular Lulu DK pattern Poppy, shown with their new stone washed matelassé Costa and peeking out of the top corner, the new feathery Atoll.

A new Lulu DK pattern, inspired by the plants around her Lyford Cay home, is Palmyra, printed on a featherweight cotton voile. It is shown with scallop edged pillows in Matouk’s new graphic Malibu.

The new Havana is a beautiful stonewashed, yard-dyed basketweave linen that is sophisticated enough to be dressed up yet perfectly casual for beach or country setting.

Entertaining is clearly an important aspect of the show and candles are an indispensible part of any venue. I love the square versions from Greentree. All handmade in the Catskills of 100% beeswax, they have a distinct artistic bent.

their collections also include whimsical was renderings of their favorite animals, geometric forms and many others.

With an overwhelming booth filled with a wide variety of hand-embroidered products, it was difficult to choose one shot to embrace all they do. Preserving the traditions of classic needlework to celebrate contemporary living and occasions, all the products, from hand towels, cocktail and dinner napkins, estate table linens and more, feature hand-drawn trim and hemstitching on pure cotton or linen.

  2. What a range of products and styles! The hand-embroidered napkins are incredible–the work involved!
    The beach tent is adorable, but it wouldn’t last a minute on the beach here–way too windy. Even umbrellas have a hard time.
