The New York International Gift Fair is a huge trade show displaying products from 2,800 companies and designers from over 80 countries; the biannual event is truly a splendid sight. I gathered a ton of wonderful picks to share.
Whether shopping for apparel or an accent for the room, the work of Donna Wilson stood out because of its inventive patterns and endearing shapes. Donna’s precious pillowed incarnations of nature’s gentlest creatures are a unique solution to throws.
Whether populating a forest of evergreens or creating a cloud formation, these plushy guys are adorable and make a fantastic bunch on a bed or couch.
Adding a fun pop of color to a room is always a great idea in my book, and I love animals! What could be more fun and graphic than the bold silhouette of a purple baby lamb? These rocking benches combine really great design and convenient function for the nursery. Just so cute and chic!
I think all children dream that their toys might come to life and have a party while they are sleeping. The ever-clever Kikkerland has made this a reality. This Woodland Diarama holds a magic woodland world that plays inside the frame and then hides again. The thrill of catching a glimpse of foxes, bunnies and deer captivates both mommy and baby!
Pictures are more than decorations—they are memories and symbols of our most special moments. Designed by students at SCAD, these Puffy Frames from The Working Class Studio mimic elaborate molded frames but are soft and plushy. Safely and easily hung on the wall, these puffy frames really make a portrait stand out. Use these to hang photos, your children’s projects or art.
Part of learning is hands-on building! Take for example these eco-friendly and charming animals from Topozoo. They would be wonderful sitting on the dresser or fun to play with; they come in a variety of shapes and are made from 100% recycled materials—super giftable!
Dolls from Stuf have all the detailing of a smart and humorous comic book character with the cuddliness of a toy. Made in a variety of quirky characters, their artful designs are sure to make a statement.
With so many wonderful designs and products, it was hard to narrow it down. I am always excited by the selection of great new toys, room accents and apparel options. I can’t wait to bring you more items I discovered during the season ahead! You can check out Michelle’s picks from the show too.
