1. Modern Makeovers
While modern style shows the here and now, it has actually constantly taken hints from various periods and cultures. At ICFF this year, a number of the modern outside home furnishings nodded to the 1950s through ’70s along with to tropical resorts.
Mexican business Mexa Style, for instance, won an ICFF Editors Award for its brilliant outside collections. A lot of its items riff on conventional chair styles, such as the Acapulco, Equipal and Windsor, and integrate conventional Mexican weaving strategies.
The dining chairs from Mexa’s Porset collection, seen here, honor Mexico-based Cuban designer Clara Porset, who was well-known for reinterpreting the Latin American Butaque chair in the mid-20th century.
