The Milk Stand by Design Milk Returns to ICFF 2017
Curated Space to Recognize North American Influence on Global Design
(New York) – March 10, 2017 – ICFF®, North America’s largest and most prestigious series of design events for interiors in its 29th year, welcomes the Milk Stand by Design Milk back for ICFF 2017. The Milk Stand, a group of designers and brands curated by Design Milk founder and editor, Jaime Derringer, brings a well designed mix of décor items, jewelry and artwork, all cash-and-carry, at pricepoints to fit an array of budgets to the ICFF NYC show floor this May 21-24.
“I’m excited to bring The Milk Stand back to ICFF,” said Derringer. “The designers confirmed so far are all incredibly talented. Our focus this year is the importance of creating a space to recognize and celebrate North American-based design. While we all draw inspiration from all corners of the globe, it’s so important to highlight designers in North America and their contributions to the global design scene, especially during ICFF; the premiere North American design event.”
“The Milk Stand created a lot of buzz on the show floor last year,” said Kevin O’Keefe, ICFF event director. “I’m thrilled to welcome Jaime and each participating designer to ICFF, and know the experience will again be a highlight for attendees.”
