At this year's Architectural Digest Home Show, held March 20-23 at Pier 94 in New York City, the staff at Murdock Solon Architects selected a few of its favorite exhibitions. From built-in-countertop espresso machines to gorgeously detailed handmade furniture, the show offered a plethora of inspiration for upcoming projects.
Karkula, a Brooklyn-based furniture, flooring, and lighting curator and designer, proved that its plight to provide discerning New Yorkers with impeccably designed products is successful. We were especially enamored with this Discipline Pocket Chair made of soft-touch cuoietto leather and wood. We couldn't help but want to snuggle right into the Slumber poufs by Casalis.
The clean lines and geometric shapes of Asher Israelow were simply lovely, specifically the Lincoln Chair made of leather, black walnut, and brass. Israelow works from his Brooklyn Navy Yard studio and designs for the "modern explorer." According to Israelow, "Each piece narrates the story of its materials, with an honest approach to joinery and a touch of conceit."
A firm favorite, we were again inspired by LV Wood, who showcased their reclaimed collection in collaboration with Ligne Roset's modern furniture collection. Originally founded in Buffalo, New York, LV Wood now has a showroom in the Chelsea/Flatiron District and has covered many notable New York City floors, including the James Hotel penthouse suites and the Griffin Nightclub.
