ICFF-International Contemporary Furniture Fair, the most important design fair in North America, is back in May 2019, with the 31st edition. The 2018 edition hosted more than 900 exhibitors, from all categories related to furniture and interior architecture, furnishings, bathroom furniture, kitchen, lighting, floorings and wall coverings, fabrics and wallpapers.
The audience is highly specialized, mostly architects, interior designers, real estate developers, and other creative people. In addition, a good percentage of the 38,000 visitors come from retail stores, and the last day is open to the general public. ICFF is part of NYCxDesign, the official New York design week.
