White Plains, N.Y. - The New York International Gift Fair will host a new "Open House" exhibit that will showcase 2013 home furnishings trends, from materials and color to commerce and branding.
Presented in partnership with One Kings Lane, Pantone, and Home Textiles Today's parent company Sandow Media, the display will illustrate products in six key trend categories, followed by an online flash sale of featured merchandise to benefit Gift For Life, the home, gift and stationery industries' charity partner.
The 72-hour sale will begin on Aug. 19, on www.onekingslane.com.
Sandow editors will forecast home market trends, Pantone will provide color direction, and One Kings Lane's merchandising team will illustrate the trends in a curated display at the NYIGF.
It will be open during NYIGF show hours, from Aug. 18-22, at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Center.
In connection with the display, a seminar titled "Open House -What's Hot in Home Design?" will explore trends influencing home products - from materials and color to commerce and branding.
