2013 Architectural Digest Home Design Show

2013 Architectural Digest Home Design Show

By Nina Green

Moving up to Philadelphia, I am close to so many great Interior Design and home shows. I have attended many of them, and the Architectural Digest Home Design Show was one of the most memorable.

I had never attended the Architectural Digest Home Design Show before, but was very impressed when I did. From appliances, luxury flooring, and furniture to local artists selling their wares, the show was a good size and well worth the trip to NYC.  Some of the top things I enjoyed were:

1.  Arcways Custom Stairways

I am impressed with their staircase designs, whether they are industrial, traditional, serious or whimsical, I love the idea of a company’s sole purpose is to provide engineered art-pieces.

2. Listone Giordano

Although their catalog is predominately in Italian, I understand the beauty of their product through their photos. Their ingenious idea to put pattern on the floor through traditional materials is groundbreaking. Unfortunately, in the States it may be too groundbreaking, considering the most pattern we will put on the floor is a five fingered parquet. One day, maybe, just maybe, we will become adventuresome to put these wonderful products into our home (any volunteers please?)

3. NanaWall 

Is it a wall, window, a door? I am fascinated with these structural wall/windows and how effortlessly they transition from a stationary glass wall to a completely open space. NanaWall protects from water and air infiltration, provides sound insulation, and high energy efficiency when closed. There are over 20 different systems to choose from guaranteeing there is something for every style. Whether in a large home attached to an expansive porch or in the city with very little outdoor space, you can enjoy the luxury of an outdoor room.

During the winter time the NanaWall is structurally sound and insulated to use the room all year long, even during the coldest winter months.

4. Irinox- Freddy Hot & Cold

This is an amazing appliance! It is touted to be the only domestic appliance that can shock freeze, cook, thaw, proof, blast chill, and heat. With its precise temperature control, it can shock freeze food down to -35C to keep food fresh or maintain consistent temperature for proofing breads and brioches. It has a slow temperature function to gently cook meat thus preserving flavor and texture and is delicate enough to melt chocolate without scorching. Convenient functions such as “Ready Meal” allows the food to be held in the unit at a refrigerated state and brought up to serving temperature. Whew, that is a long list of extreme functions from a small unit.

5. Peter Bynum and his “Illuminated Paintings”

I had the chance to see his works of art, and was thoroughly impressed. The vibrant colors and interesting shapes are painted on tempered glass panels and then layered over each other. The finished panels are then backlit and the outcome is absolutely outstanding. His work is exhibited across the world, and if you get a chance to check out his work in person, I highly recommend it!

We had hired Nina for color consultation for our Kitchen. She was prompt and beyond thorough and helped us choose an absolutely great color that we actually used in other areas of the house. Her fee was definitely worth it, since the color we ended up with would have been passed right over if we were doing it ourselves. We would work with her again.
