Armchair Design Shows

By Lisa Peck, ASID
Attending design shows on line is a bit trickier to find than fashion shows. I tend to just google the name of the show and then look at the online coverage to see photos and opinions from the shows.  Top shows I look for are ICFF, Milan Furniture Fair, Maison&Oject, and NeoCon.

You too can use the power of google to "attend" any of the design shows that take place all over the world. A word of caution...I do not recommend armchair travel as a substitute for actually experiencing things...just to expand your horizons. Maybe a virtual tour will inspire you to get on a plane!
