Big Apple’s citywide showcase of everything from rug weaving to lighting design.

This mesmeric ‘Nebulae’ rug is by Déjate Querer, part of the México Territorio Creativo exhibit at Wanted Design Manhattan. Each felt facet is hand-sewn into the pattern, the restrained tones making it all the more impactful.

‘Brasscloth’ was among the collection that won Calico Wallpaper best wall coverings in the 2015 ICFF editors’ awards. Inspired by dip-dyeing, it’s available in a series of iridescent, gradated hues (Midnight Blue Pictured). The combination of artisanal methods and digital technologies results in a pattern that’s entirely customisable, and non-repeating.
