NY NOW, the Market for Home+Lifestyle

My friend Kelly and I got press passes to cover NY NOW, the Market for Home+Lifestyle, so we jumped on the train on Monday for a day of interior design fun at the Javits Center in New York City.

NY NOW, the Market for Home+Lifestyle, #NYNOW.After we received our passes, we headed to one of the four floors, the one with the Home brands.

NY NOW, the Market for Home+Lifestyle, #NYNOW.NY NOW features 2,800+ exhibitors with 100,000+ products in 400+ categories.

NY NOW, the Market for Home+Lifestyle, #NYNOW.One of the first booths we looked at was the Koziol booth. All of their items are made in Germany, and I’m familiar with them because my best girlfriend in Germany loves them and probably owns half of them.

They are colorful, whimsical and cute, like the little tea bag holder for the cup.

How beautiful are these white artichokes and that tea towel?

NY NOW, the Market for Home+Lifestyle, #NYNOW.Another stunning booth – I loved their framed art. These numbers would work in any room in the house — bedroom, living room, even a kids room — and really go with any interior design style, be that classic, rustic, modern, or shabby chic.

I would love one of these, maybe two for our house number, in our living room. The large ones are quite the statement piece.

Another booth full of fun paper products, by East of India. I’ve actually bought several of their products in the past at Paper Trail in Rhinebeck.

NY NOW, the Market for Home+Lifestyle, #NYNOW.As you can see, there were so many amazing things to look at in the Home section, we didn’t even make it to the Lifestyle, Handmade, and New section of NY NOW before we walked to the HGTV Blogger Block Party.

This was a 4-day event and I can totally see how you could spend four days exploring all of these amazing interior design and home decor brands and products.

I made some great contacts and hope to work with a few of the brands I features here in the future. Fingers crossed!

Which one of these products is your favorite?
