This 13th annual home design show has a wide variety of  300 premium brands of home furnishings ranging from stoves to lighting fixtures, rugs, wall coverings,  stones and tiles and furniture.  I was so blown away by so many interesting cutting – edge household products that I picked the most unusual ones to write about.

Think Fabricate,  the Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary design studio has a contemporary offering of handcrafted furnished products called Look Inside.  There are  creative furniture designs  that are very functional.   An example is this wall-mounted cabinet that slides open to reveal a  multi-functional TV.  This  storage system features a bar at one end and built-in organization units, including a space for a 32 inch TV that has closing  sliding doors.  Another cool product is a coffee table with a carved out section to put house keys.  Think Fabricate was the winner of  best interior design of  2013.

Moving along is  Ato Cha Design, a company that specializes in artisan crafted furniture to store record albums and turntables.  It’s designed in a very creative way with the vinyl albums facing out showing the front covers as opposed the the sides on  typical record shelves.

Arcways  is a company based  in New York and other parts of the United States that design custom stairways.  These are well crafted and very elegant, but also  extremely unique.  They are not the only stairway company at the show, but are truly the best at what they do.
