The Boutique Design Trade Fair (BNDY) is the hospitality show, bringing together the industry’s interior designers, architects, developers, and experts to see the latest furnishings, lighting, fabrics, wall coverings, flooring, carpeting, bath and spa, and accessories.  

We spent one day going to and fro between 600 booths and presentations. Check out a few of our favorites below.

Grid Collection
Warp & Weft for Yabu Pushelberg

The first four rugs from a new collaboration between Yabu Pushelberg and Warp & Weft were revealed during BDNY (the remaining eight designs will be released throughout 2018). Inspired by the right angles and geometry of urban topography, principals George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg softened and simplified the visual narrative of rigid city streets by deconstructing grid-like patterns and transforming them into one-dimensional planes.
