I am having a lot of fun sorting through my finds from last weekend’s New York International Gift Fair. Here are photos from more of my favorite booths:
I had the pleasure of meeting Julie Klear, the founder of Zid Zid, a rising star in the kids’ design world, with products designed and manufactured in Morrocco. Inside those fantastic elephant bookends is The Butter Man, a new book that Julie has illustrated.
Los-Angeles based design firm notNeutral never ceases to amaze me with their cool, design-inspired lifestyle products. Remember the wall decals I posted about this week? Here they are applied to furniture- fantastic! And how about those fantastic city plates?
I can always count on Fred & Friends for laugh-out-loud funny (yet entirely practical) home and kids’ products. Love the “Xposed Xray” handbag, and the “yellow pages” booster seat!
I met the folks over at Dante Beatrix, who generously sponsored one of our blogiversary giveaways. They have these great kids’ backpacks, plus, just about the cutest doggy-carrier I’ve ever seen (and I’m not even an animal lover).
I saw this modern kids’ bedding by Bodalee in person for the first time and, wow, does it look cool. A really great modern choice for the elementary-age set (or older). I like the “space” design (middle bed) best.
More to come from NYIGF!
