Once again, many ICFF revelers started the evening in MoMA’s Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden for the annual Opening Night Party.
It’s hard not to enjoy a party where you can sit in Bertoia chairs around Barnett Newman’s monumental Broken Obelisk.

On the corner of Great Jones and Lafayette Streets, near the new Noho Design District

. . . and s’mores by the Jewels of New York.

A couple doors down, The Future Perfect was presenting new furniture and lighting . . .
. . . including this piece by the lighting designer Alex Randall. Yow.
This porcelain dog is making you verrrrry sleepy…
