Last month marked the 12th annual Architectural Digest Home Design Show. Held in New York at Pier 94, the show drew a mixed crowd of design professionals and homeowners alike to exhibits from more than 400 luxury home furnishing companies.
The event was co-sponsored by the New York Chapter of ASID (American Society of Interior Designers), which honored retailers, manufacturers and design firms in 11 distinct home design categories as its ‘Top Picks’ for the show.
