The last 2 days have been action packed. I have been attending the Blogfest on Design, which is an event hosted by the wonderful Kravet fabric company. It all started off at the Kips Bay Showhouse on Monday, finishing up with studio tours at Kravet yesterday. With tons of interesting things in between. Here is a quick look at some of those events.
The magazine is fairly new to the market, but it has just taken off and is immensely popular. After meeting the incredibly upbeat editor, I can see why. Her positive energy & attitude infuse the colorful, idea filled magazine.
With a lively cocktail party at the antique emporium Newel. I use the word emporium because the word store does not even begin to cut it. Newel is 5 huge floors filled with world class antiques. I have never seen anything even close to that scale of antiques in one setting. Kind of mind blowing, really.
A highlight of the 2 days was meeting Aerin Lauder, who presented her new line with Lee Jofa. What a cool gal. Here new fabrics are just stunning. They work beautifully along with her new brand of lifestyle goods, Aerin. It was such a pleasure meeting her.
I then met Ted and Bailey at Eataly and we picked up things for a meal outside at Madison Square park. If you have not yet been to Eataly, put it on your list, for sure. Another mind boggling experience of LOTS. Packed with food, packed with people–really an amazing spot.
More NYC adventures tomorrow. I wonder why I am really tired when my head hits the pillow each night…
