icff 2010 trends: wood + metal

by Grace Bonney

getting through 400 pictures for both the national stationery show and icff is proving to take a little bit longer than i thought, so i’m going to be posting a few final trend stories next week. but to keep the trade fair coverage going, i wanted to share some more beautiful pieces from icff this morning, starting with gorgeous wooden and metal designs. i always have a soft spot for wooden furniture and the warmth it brings to a room- especially when made well and finished with something that really lets the natural wood color shine. so this morning i’m kicking things off with 15 of my favorite wooden and metal designs from the show- enjoy!
