Take a Look at the Designers’ Muse Vignettes
We were incredibly inspired during our visit to the ICFF show in NYC. During th event, 1stdibs hosted the Designers’ Muse showcase featuring vignettes from designers Shawn Henderson, Drew McGukin, and Ernest de la Torre.
During this experience, each designer curated a space using only the design basics, seating, lighting, a surface and wall coverings, pulled from the New & Custom offerings on 1stdibs. Each installation is a display of inspired design, a vision engendered by the creativity of other artisans, exhibiting the innate cyclic nature of design.
Since its introduction in November 2016, New & Custom has more than doubled in size, representing 15% of all furniture sales on 1stdibs with over 30,000 pieces. Read on to discover more about these vignettes below:
