ICFF 2010 Favorite: Deborah Bowness wallpaper.

   

Deborah Bowness’s Trompe l’oeil-esque hand printed wallpaper hit our chic spot. The petite Brit has been designing wallpaper for seven years. Ms. Bowness starts with a digital image,  then screen prints or digitally prints her designs, which are offered in drops or in kits — individual pieces that can be arranged to create a unique scenes on your wall. Her images evoke a modern sensibility, influenced by mid-century aesthetics. Her collections include, “Frocks” — a collage of dresses; “Utility” — selections of chairs, lamps, books, and drawers; “Flora & Fauna” — flowers, etc.; “Books” — stacks and stacks of books; and “Illusions of Grandeur” — distorted and faded patterns. We chatted briefly with designer, who informed us that she’s soon launching her Web shop, which will very much imitate her workspace. We can’t wait!!

ICFF: Saturday at the Javits.

After the art installation, we were off to take in ICFF 2010 at the Javits Center. We milled about for three hours, chatting with designers, vendors, and oogling over all of the amazing pieces, it was a blast. I’ve included some photos below of my favorite sights so that you can see what we liked, but I’ll be writing more about these later.
