Here’s a tiny taste of New York design week. I’ve spent the last few days walking, walking, walking and looking. And talking. There’s some beautiful work out there. I’m going to break it down roughly by country – which is how the fair was set up. I’ll start with the British and globe trot until I get back to the US. I think some of the most interesting work for me came from local US designers. I’ve seen most of the big guns and they’d already launched their new ranges in Milan. It was the smaller guys that were interesting here… 

British design collective Deadgood is a perfect example (pic of their stand above). Think Established & Sons when they first started out (minus the cash!) and you’ll get an idea of what they do. Designers Dan Ziglam and Elliot Brook are developing a British design brand. It includes quirky, beautifully crafted pieces like the Love Collection (below) – the heart emblem carried through from buttons on the back of an armchair to the timber frame for a mirror. It’s really nice work. Not hugely groundbreaking – their lighting range reminds me of Autoban’s Tulip lights – but that doesn’t stop me admiring it (and wanting a few of those pieces for my home!) 

More tomorrow when I get back to Los Angeles.
