Robert and I have just returned from an inspiring trip to New York City where we had the pleasure of attending NY Now, a leading design and home interiors show for trade professionals.

At the show, it was great to reconnect with some of our current suppliers, who where there showcasing their latest collections and to discover new products from other small boutique brands and independent designers. Both Robert and I felt like our time at the show was very productive as it had an abundance of home accessories that felt fresh and right for Provide.

Metallics have been a strong element in the design world for awhile now and it appears to be still going strong. We saw metallic finishes being offered as options on existing designs as well as appearing on products that are just being released.

Chilewich (top) is now offering their Bouclé placemat in a gold like finish called Gilt – we love the texture and the sophisticated look that this can bring to table settings.

Danish brand Stelton (second from the top) has long been on our radar and now the timing seems right – for autumn 2014 they have unveiled a variety of accessories for the table and home in stunning metallic finishes.

Finell (third from the top) is a recently launched housewares and accessories brand producing products that beautifully balance function with a modern sensibility. They work in a variety of materials – a standout piece is their Angle folded metal dish in stainless steel.

Brooklyn based brand, Fort Standard (bottom) has recently arrived in our showroom and is turning out to be a very successful part of our offering. So we were excited to meet them at the show and to see their latest designs including the architecturally inspired standing bowls in the new copper finish.

Now back in Vancouver, Robert and I are sorting through all our notes, photographs taken and catalogues gathered from the show – we will be placing orders over the coming weeks and are excited to fill Provide with beautiful new designs for the fall and winter season.
