Handmade in Brooklyn, VOLK Furniture has a distinctive playfulness that showcases hard materials yielding to various attempts at aesthetic softening. Brian Volk-Zimmerman, the company’s founder and designer, has a thing for unexpected details, such as a nice fabric-lined drawer, an intentional shadow reflecting the physical shape of a mirror, or a cutout from one furniture piece found performing decorative duty in another. Natural marble, cork, and bleached ash lend an elegant sensibility to the lively collection shown at ICFF, which can also be ordered up in a variety of fine materials. —Annie
