Highlights From ICFF design show in New York City:
THG-Paris Debuted Gorgeous 
New Collections 
That Has Everyone Talking!
ICFF is one of my favorite design shows because it lures up-and-coming artisans with name brands together in one space.  The exhibitors run the gambit and that makes for a rich experience.  Believe me, this is not a boring industry trade show, but a well lit, easy-to-maneuver and not overwhelmingly large space to sleuth out exceptional design options for the home.  You can walk the entire show in one day, and my feet are thankful for that! The downstairs section collects all the artsy Brits in one area showing stellar new design with materials and options you may not see in other places.  The upstairs Luxe section is one of my favorites and pulls from the high-end luxury home market with a hand selected cornucopia of big name brands for the home but in a very pretty package.  I like that I can see luxury bath products at this venue and not in a hectic techy kitchen and bath show with rows of faucets together, but, rather, in a space where we get to see the best showcased.
we looked under a microscope at these new pieces
to see the fine Swarovski crystals embedded in the design.  

THG, a fabulous high-end Parisian atelier for the luxury bath, debuted a new collection of fittings at the show.  The booth was centrally located and their impressive designs put them at the forefront of the luxury pavilion where they certainly grabbed everyone's attention.  We were busy posting on social media with hasthag #JaimeTHG to help spread the word about these new collections.  I was impressed with all of their designs, but four brand new sink fittings caught my eye, which were showcased for the very first time at ICFF. 
Take a look...
1. Dahlia

Taking the form of its namesake flower, Dahlia from the the side view is a pretty design.  Once we photographed the handle from a birdseye view (exactly the view you would look at this each morning), the design came to life showing the craftsmanship and the intricate details of the flower in this design and offered in a matte velvet finish. Originally created by  famed artist Rene Lalique this classic design looks stylish in this form, and what a fabulous way to start your morning!
 2. Monte Carlo
is a collaboration of Manufacture de Monaco and Swarovski to create this unique gem-packed superb fitting.  An up-close view shows the incredible amount of detailing that goes into creating this design.
 
3. Wedding
This design instantly transforms me to a tall white wedding cake and the white gem-encrusted beauty feels ultra luxurious and would make a perfect addition to lady's bathroom. Appropriately titled, this design marries white porcelain with Swarovski crystals.
4.Pomme 
Created with Lalique crystal the Pomme uses the icon apple shape with panache and offers it up in a clear satin crystal or a gold luster finish, 
both are divine!
Metamorphose collection 
was also recently debuted, and speaking of pretty packages, this new collection shows the bathroom faucet in a beautifully organic form. It was created to hold a fluid contemporary shape with an architectural spout that begins with a rounded form, transitions into a square or rectangular design, and finishes with a round shape again where the water flows.  Designed by Olivia Putman,  it is also offered  with lever handles with a brass insert ir a ceramic insert in either black or white color.  In order to create this intricate design THG sends the lever insert to a world-renowned Swiss watchmaker, and same source used to make my famous Chanel watch - now this is certainly luxury design! 
and, the bling continues.  
These faucet handles are gorgeous gems 
and some of them actually light up using LED to boot.
