Dwell recently stopped by the 2015 edition of NYNow to have a look at some of the latest home goods and accessories. Among their design finds was a line of hand-turned candlesticks, planters, and serving boards made from wood and cork by Oakland-based designer, maker, and Product Design alumna Melanie Abrantes ('12).
Drawing 35,000 attendees from all 50 states and 80+ countries, NY NOW® is produced twice annually by Emerald Expositions and is open to the trade only. Held in January and August in New York City, the Market hosts 2,800 exhibiting companies showcasing the very best lines across the home, lifestyle and gift spectrum.
