ICFF 2008

ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) is this weekend (May 17 – 20). Unfortunately, I can’t make it this year, but wanted to highlight a few vendors who’ve been kind enough to send me their information.

Danish design icon Eilersen, a leader in design since the 1960’s in Scandinavia, is planning to stock their high-end models in the US in order to offer delivery within two to three weeks from purchase. N. Eilersen A/S was founded in 1895 and has given both name and life to many classics. The founder, Nils Eilersen, was the first person in Denmark to use steam to form wood, and this type of innovation and tradition continue to be the mainstays of the company today. A fourth-generation, family-run business, N. Eilersen A/S has been producing distinctive furniture since the 1950s and is a global brand recognized for renowned quality, iconic designs, comfort and unparalleled durability.
