The Architectural Digest Design Show, which kicked off yesterday in New York City, is where trends go to thrive. The 300 or so exhibitors on hand include premium appliance brands, like Jenn-Air and Thermador, as well as boutique purveyors of luxury goods, from bath faucets to outdoor furnishings. The show is definitely not the place to go bargain hunting—five-figure light fixtures are common, as are refrigerators costing north of $10,000. But to see where the home design industry is headed, this is the place to be. Here are the coolest products we spotted. If you’ll be in New York between now and Sunday, when the event wraps up, do some trendspotting of your own. At $40, at least the tickets are reasonable.
