Though there are hundreds of exhibitors at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), a select few were called out for their exceptional wares by a panel of judges who name the Editors' Awards. This year, the esteemed group included representatives from Dwell, Wallpaper*, Metropolis, Azure, Intramuros, and Interni, who took to the show floor and passionately debated the mertis of their favorite designs. In the slideshow that follows, we share a look at the 16 winning booths.
