Our Favorite Finds at New York Design Week 2019 — Part II

With our OFFSITE show taking the year off, the biggest question we got this week wasn't "What have you seen that's good?" but rather "Doesn't it feel great to do nothing?" And while the latter question was valid (and the answer an emphatic yes), the fact that our schedules were free and easy this year actually allowed us to see even more that was quite good. Today we're rounding up our favorites from the two big shows, ICFF and Wanted.

Does Eny Lee Parker Have the Best Booth at ICFF?

In the past two years, Eny Lee Parker has doubled down on ceramics as a primary material — despite having injured her back a little over a year ago while throwing a large piece on the wheel. "I’m doing my best coming up with things I can manage without throwing all the time," she explains, "so my new pieces are all about doing what you can — no need to be perfect." It's a humble way to describe what many have dubbed the best booth at ICFF this year.

This Translucent, Candy-Colored Lucite Jewelry is All We Want to Wear Right Now

Knots, chains, translucent candy colors — Corey Moranis's SS19 Lucite jewelry collection ticks off more trend boxes that we could possibly count. But in truth, the most beguiling thing about Moranis's jewelry is the Lucite itself — a fascinating material that recalls our obsession with colored glass; it, too, retains the memory of its previously liquid state.

Fort Standard’s New Striped Wood Collection Goes Against the Grain

Gio Ponti, cabana stripes, hoop skirts — these are just a few of the references that come to mind when you first see Fort Standard's new Cooperage collection, made from alternating stripes of light and dark wood, which launched this week in New York at Colony Design. But what you don't necessarily think of is the process by which Fort Standard founder Gregory Buntain achieved the collection's incredibly playful, graphic look.
