New York’s design week used to be an insular event, with industry people confined to a convention center or mingling among themselves over warm white wine in a showroom or two. But this year, NYCxDesign ran for nearly a fortnight—with events, exhibitions, pop ups, and parties all over town. The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) is still the reason for the season, but everything spilling out across the city has given the design world a very public face. Whether or not you can tell a Bellini sofa from an Ikea couch, the mood for the last 10 days or so was that design is officially a thing in New York. And if you weren’t in town to take it all in, don’t worry. I hit the streets with photographer Ike Edeani, who has shot this excellent house and many others for Dwell, to find some of the best work out there.
