Live@ICFF: Last Night’s Parties
Once again, many ICFF revelers started the evening in MoMA’s Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden for the annual Opening Night Party.
It’s hard not to enjoy a party where you can sit in Bertoia chairs around Barnett Newman’s monumental Broken Obelisk.
And the cheese sticks were divine.
Also in the sculpture garden: a preview of how you may feel by ICFF day four.
By 8 o’clock, the garden was getting crowded–time to head downtown!
On the corner of Great Jones and Lafayette Streets, near the new Noho Design District
On Great Jones, Areaware was throwing itself a five-year anniversary party . . .
. . . with tunes by the “street jazz” band Baby Soda . . .
. . . and s’mores by the Jewels of New York.
Hand-torched to order!
Not part of the new collection: these bread-loaf lights
A couple doors down, The Future Perfect was presenting new furniture and lighting . . .
. . . including this piece by the lighting designer Alex Randall. Yow.
This porcelain dog is making you verrrrry sleepy…
