Just a few blocks away from the NY Now trade show, a new home and gift market debuted this past weekend.
Shoppe Object was formed by the founders of Aesthetic Movement and Capsule, with a mission to create a trade show that had a highly-curated, community feel. With a welcoming staff, a cosy cafe space, and friendly designers – Shoppe Object did just that. The show offers a combination of established, recognisable brands as well as emerging designers, bringing newness to the mix.
A key trend throughout the show was the importance of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Everyday items become decorative pieces as designers have begun to recognise that consumers value objects beyond their simple function, and want to purchase something that looks beautiful in their apartment (and on social media, too).
THIS Co. showcased a selection of items for tabletop and organisation in a brilliant range of metallics. The bronze, copper, and brass finishes gave simple products such as a cup or a tray, an elegant look.
These cutting boards from American Heirloom have been engraved with decorative designs, from constellations to geometric patterns, making one side ideal for serving, and the other for cutting.
Simple cocktail stirrers also had a decorative detail as seen in FS Objects booth.
From textiles to stationery, a range of home and gift products were on display, and offered an inspiring look at an alternative design showcase in New York City.
