As part of NYC x Design 2014 at Industry City, WorkOf curated and staged an apartment featuring pieces from over 30 local NYC makers on our site. The event was co-hosted by WantedDesign and was an incredible way for us to bring the community together again and highlight all the beautiful design being done locally.
We were thrilled with the results and the rooms came together even better than we imagined, with special pieces designed just for us alongside new lines, limited colorways and existing designs. Everything looked wonderful and made for a really magical experience.
Some highlights included a custom bed by Vidi Vixi, the debut of two new lines of wallpaper by Calico and Eskayel, as well as a sofa collaboration between Farrah Sit and Rebecca Atwood. The room was styled and photographed by our friend, the wonderfully talented Emily Johnston.
Special thanks to Industry City for their continued support of the arts and manufacturing in Brooklyn as well as Claire and Odile, and the whole WantedDesign team, for giving us this special opportunity.
