NYDC’s “What’s New, What’s Next” Event

You could feel the energy and excitement in the air at the New York Design Center’s “What’s New What’s Next” event, which took place on September 14. The 16 floors of interior design showrooms represent well-known and emerging brands of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, rugs, lighting, accessories and appliances, as well as antiques, 20th Century vintage furniture and magazines and media about design—everything you might need or want for fine interior decorating. Ninety two showrooms were open to more than 7,500 guests for this glamorous annual event. There were 52 designer presentations and panel discussions and many Meet & Greets with the industry’s top names, editors, and manufacturers. There was an abundance of champagne and elegant snacks to entice the participants to linger and explore what’s new and what’s next in design.

The New York Design Center is located at 200 Lexington Avenue (near 32nd Street). It is the country’s oldest furniture and design building. Designed by Ely Jacques Kahn and built in 1926 as the New York Furniture Exchange, over the years the building’s focus changed and it was renamed The New York Design Center in 1981.

The building is “for the trade” only. Consumers must be accompanied by or have a letter of introduction from an interior designer to visit the showrooms. DIY’ers can visit the New York Design Center through the Access to Design program (go to Suite 424).
