This is the last post in this series of “What we LOVED at the Architectural Digest Design Show 2019!”. Again I have to say I am privileged to live in NY where there is ALWAYS something going on either in NYC or Long Island. The only way you will truly benefit from all the happening is you have to SHOW UP! That really is all it takes! Show up, Learn about the new products, Be exposed to new ideas and most of all Engage with the trades who will become an extension of your business. Remember there is no I in team and wouldn’t you rather have a team behind you than go it alone?? I would!! But that’s just me some people need all the praise and acknowledgment where I’d rather collaborate to take the project to the highest level possible.
Back to the post so again if you missed any of the other posts we will provide a link to those before getting into the last one on Furniture and rooms! We may have saved the best for last! You decide!

Shown above is the THE AD APARTMENT
Designed by Sasha Bikoff Interior Design
This year, our iconic AD Apartment is designed by one of AD’s New Creatives, interior designer Sasha Bikoff, who reimagined the space in her signature whimsical world. “I wanted to create a space that embodied an ‘uptown girl living in a downtown world’ spirit,” says the 31-year-old New Yorker. “It represents the dichotomy between a woman who loves antiques and appreciates the finer things yet is still edgy and modern.”
There is so much inspiration to pull from Sasha’s designs! Don’t you think so?
CHAI MING STUDIOS showed many beautiful contemporary pieces at the show.
From the website:
Chai Ming Studios was founded in 2011 by visionary designer, Gary Lee. Our values – transcendent design, impeccable craftsmanship, quality service – are manifest in every detail of every piece. Each piece presents a true collaboration between designer, craftsman and client, with an unwavering devotion to materials, process and artistry. We offer refined, bespoke furniture pieces inspired by the international community, extraordinarily executed by hand using traditional methods. We embrace juxtapositions and the unexpected, celebrating textures and finishes while honoring classic designs. We intend this collection as a starting point for designers so that we can work together to create design solutions for any project. We are committed to establishing exchanges that further designers’ visions, extending our approach and sharing our experience. We value relationships, whether with a customer or a supplier in our broad network. We honor the smallest detail and the elegant whole – to us, they are equally essential.
KOKET I LOVE this Contemporary Glam vendor! The details in the pieces they have are so original!
From the website:
Daring design aesthetic, high impact events, lavish presentations, notoriously risqué ad campaigns and inspiring editorial, have an uncanny way of conveying KOKET’s mission to inspire love and empower through its statement pieces and unique design driven experiences and content. The innate desire to seduce and entice its devotees is perfectly illustrated in the Guilty Pleasures and Exotic Opulence Collections composed of dramatic case goods, luscious upholstery, exquisite lighting and decadent furs; all of which mesmerize with their magical mineral medleys, lux metallics, vibrant jewel tones and exotic peacock feathers.
PASARGAD HOME Another favorite of mine! Love the use of plush fabrics and bold colors in their products.
From the website:
Pasargad’s history dates back to 1904 as designers and makers of some of the finest rugs known for their quality and workmanship. In 1979 the company expanded to the United States and opened a branch in New York City. Founded by Beni Isfahani as a third-generation family business entrepreneur. At Pasargad we believe rugs are not just a simple floor covering but a form of art for the floor. We have recently introduced a modern line of home furnishings as well. We’ve always been considered the authority on superior quality, craftsmanship, and style.
Pasargad’s forward-thinking Philosophy has always been to design and create an extensive line of Traditional, Transitional, and Contemporary rug and furniture collections to appeal to the latest industry trend. At Pasargad, we provide our customers with unique products and research of the latest fabrics for colors and textures.
Pasargad takes pride in providing excellent customer service and remains committed to providing even better services, through its products and ongoing research, so that you as a customer always receive the best possible rug and decor you can imagine.
