Shoppe Object, New York
February 5-7
Private Location
The winter show will also feature its signature mix of exclusive new brand discoveries, increased sponsorship of talented Black designers through Shoppe Object’s Black Lives Matter Action Initiative and the return of beloved country pavilions, including Showcase Japan and Made In Ireland, as well as the launch of several strategic partnerships designed to bring more fresh product to market from places near and far. In total, more than 100 hand-selected additions have been added to Shoppe Object’s ever-growing roster, seeking to present the very best of home and gift. In addition to the growing presence of larger, established design brands, several new initiatives will create more opportunities for smaller makers at this market. A new pilot program, the Global Artisan Project, broadens the show’s representation of hand-made products from around the world, in partnership with Karen Gibbs and Colvin English of By Hand Consulting. Washington, D.C.–based Aid to Artisans is joining the show for the first time, highlighting collaborations with enterprises in Mexico. Kiel Mead, founder and principal of Brooklyn-based American Design Club, has forged a multimarket alliance with the show, to develop a unique incubator program.
