North America’s premier showcase for contemporary design, the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) is an encyclopedic exhibition of up-to-the-moment designs, as well as a series of programs, exhibits and features.

From May 19–21, 2011, 145,000 square feet of the Javits Center was filled with more than 24,000 interior designers, architects, retailers, designers, manufacturers, representatives, distributors, and developers. On Tuesday, May 22, the ICFF was open to the general public, as well.

More than 500 exhibitors from all points of the globe displayed contemporary furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath for residential and commercial interiors.
