From the massive International Contemporary Furniture Fair to countless designer showcases, May in New York is a whirlwind of artful exhibitions, exciting new launches, and inspiring interiors—basically, it's a design lover's favorite time of year. Team Domino canvased the city to hit as many NYCxDesign events
as possible to spot the latest trends and get some serious inspiration for the year ahead. Here's what we can't stop thinking about. (Spoiler: Statement lighting
is here to stay, and fat forms are oh so in.)Sight Unseen Offsite
always stuns, and this year was no exception. Several of our favorite pieces came from the show, where cross-disciplinary collaboration was the focus—designers were paired with a brand outside of the industry. One standout showcase? The desert-hued display featuring new rugs by Cold Picnic
and funky totem-esque lamps by Giselle Hicks
and Moving Mountains
for Levi’s Made and Crafted.
I would happily live in this space (it's also the only thing I Instagrammed
during design week), and digital photo editor Lahaina Alcantara is equally smitten. “The rust-creme-blush combo is really striking a chord with my deep Southwestern roots."
