NYnow Best New Product

It was an honor to be selected as a guest judge for the NY Now IFDA selects Best of Show awards. I have been covering this show for about half my life so it was extremely rewarding to be thinking about the vendors, product, and how it all evolves as part of my decision making process.

These awards were made possible by the IFDA – International Furnishing & Design Association New York Chapter.  9 Judges with diverse creative background collaborates as well as worked individually to select a winning product for 10 categories.
