The Official Guide to NYCxDesign

Everything you need to know about New York’s annual design celebration.

Welcome to the eleventh edition of Metropolis magazine’s New York Design Guide. And welcome to New York! This pocket-size guide will serve as your compass, directing you toward
the spaces, places, and events you won’t want to miss during New York Design Week and throughout the coming year.

Special note: NYCxDesign is an organization set up to communicate information about our city as the locus of design talent. And at no time is that talent more visible than during design week in May. The New York Design Guide is the official publication of NYCxDesign. Even the mayor approves!

This year’s Design Guide is organized around notable neighborhoods, whose unique spirits pervade every page. Use it to find, shop, see, and experience the best of design
in New York City.

  • Use the Neighborhood Listings to find everything from galleries and museums to restaurants, shops, and showrooms.
  • Live like a local with Design Picks, as top designers and curators share their favorite neighborhood places.
  • Delve into Design Essentials, a curated collection of must-see places and events.
  • Explore Design Destinations—four major decorative showroom hubs—and glimpse their cutting-edge contents.

Be sure to check our up-to-the-minute event listings to know where you need to be for all the openings, parties, and events around town. Plan your itinerary for design week with Metropolis’s online listings and at NYCxDesign’s official website.
