ICFF 2013 Trends: Green

by Grace Bonney

Growing up, I was obsessed with people’s favorite colors. Any new friend I made in school would be asked that pressing question and I felt defined by my own personal choice: green. To this day I still carry a little torch for fellow green-lovers and hope they’ll be as happy as I was to see that green was everywhere at ICFF. Last year there were a lot of super neon-bright colors (there were still some this year, too), but this year I felt like everywhere we looked, there was a rich jewel-toned green. From the incredible striated chair above to the faceted light below, little pops of green really had their moment. As a green-girl from day one, I was happy to see this trend. I hope you guys will enjoy these green pieces as much as I did. xo, grace
