As we do every year, Design NJ editors attended the NY Now spring market earlier this week. There was so much to see, starting with this architectural wonder:

The Javits Center, in all its gleaming, glassy glory, never fails to impress us.

Inside, we were greeted with all kinds of products in cheerful spring and summer colors.

As we chatted up design professionals from all segments of the field, we were pleased to witness, once again, their unfailing commitment to creating the finest products for enhancing the home environment.

On a cold NYC day, this light and oh-so-airy sofa had us dreaming of outdoor entertaining.

We saw these cups– a beautiful way to make tea time more special.

The coffee drinkers among us “perked up” (ha) at the bold designs on these mugs.
