Oh Joy

Show Review
24 May 2006

Wow...what a day I had yesterday. I went to New York to attend the three shows going on simultaneously: The National Stationery Show, Surtex, and ICFF. Here are some of my faves from the shows. I'll continue to post more about some new finds in the weeks to come. One noteable highlight of the Stationery Show...I saw Martha Stewart working her way through the booths! Everyone stared, but pretended not to...including me.


In the Relish booth, there were some of my favorite design folks! Good on Paper, Jill Bliss, and K. Autumn. Among them were the folks of Boon. They use high quality pulp-free abaca papers from the Philippines to create super colorful and gorgeous notepads, file folders, and portfolios...up close, they are super gorgeous and detailed...(see Design*Sponge for great photos of their work.)


I finally got to meet two sets of folks I've loved and been in touch with in the past. Erica of Paperbride (left) and Nat & Armand of Uncooked...


I loved the whimsical watercolor illustrations of Masha D'yans...


Candy Wrapper Mailers from Swizzle Factory...


Simple & sweet cards from Seraph...


Pillows, stationery, and home accessories from Working Class Studio...



Gorgeous layered wallpaper, furniture, and textiles by Catherine Hammerton...


Finely detailed votive holder from Artecnica...


Modern furniture and accessories for baby (and their cool parents) from Ducduc...


Stunning hanging lamps from Bocci...


Beautiful details and organic qualities in the furniture and interiors of Matt Gagnon...


New additions to the Dwell Baby line...


And, finally...to top off the day...a meeting of design worlds with a lovely dinner...
