So, Springtime this year has bitten me with the shopping bug. And not just any shopping bug… a BIG shopping bug. And while I rather enjoy the ailments that come as a result of this “bug” (Ha!)- I have a feeling I will be experiening a bit of sensory overload by the end of April. A couple of weeks ago, I was in Atlanta shopping in the showrooms at ADAC, next week I’ll be preparing for a trip to Morocco, where I will undoubtedly be doing more shopping. The following week is the spring market in Highpoint, and then there’s a little something called NYC20 – the mecca of all Spring Fever-induced shopping sprees.
I was recently made aware of the inaugural New York 20th Century Art and Design Fair (NYC20) which is taking place next month. The event is bringing together some of the most prestigious antique and estate dealers in the world. And the best part is- 1stdibs is sponsoring this event and has exclusively selected the 40 exhibitors. If you are unfamiliar, 1stdibs is the world largest online marketplace for one-of-a-kind and antique pieces. The website hosts international vendors who showcase a highly curated selection of objects ranging from furniture to vintage clothing– all at the same web domain (a genius and very sucessful idea)!
With 1stdibs onboard, NYC20 will most definitely be a huge success! Because I tend to layer my interiors, NYC20 would be the perfect place for me to find mid-century pieces to mix in with the more traditional antiques I love. I had a chance to look through the list of exhibitors that will be showcasing pieces for purchase during the fair and I wanted to share my picks with you…

The event begins on Thursday, April 12th with a preview party in the Tent at Lincoln Center in Damrosch Park. The NYC20 Fair opens to the public the following day and will run through Sunday, April 15th. I’m sorry to admit that my schedule doesn’t allow me to make the jaunt up the the Big Apple for the event, but I wanted to share it with you in hopes that you might be able to stop by! If you do, be sure to let me know what kind of treasures you find!
