IFDA Speakers to Review Paris, New York, Cologne Fairs

In a three-speaker seminar format, the New York Chapter of the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) will present a trend roundup, "Trade Show Highlights from Maison & Objet, Paris, NYIGF, New York and Cologne Furniture Fair."

The IFDA seminar will feature three industry executives offering their insight into three major home furnishings trade shows:

Hermine Mariaux, an expert in the fields of branding and licensing and a specialist in international marketing for home furnishings companies and museums, will focus on the most current trends from Maison & Objet in Paris. Mariaux blogged from the show for Home Textiles Today last month.

Caroline Kennedy, editor-in-chief of Gifts and Decorative Accessories magazine, will show the highlights of the latest gift markets and trends from the recent New York International Gift Fair. GDA is a sister publication to HTT.

Doty Horn, director of color and design for Benjamin Moore, will review the trends and furnishings she spotted at the Cologne Furniture Fair and offer an insider's guide to color clues and key influences.

Set for Tuesday morning, Feb. 24, the event will be held in the Brueton Showroom, Suite 1502 in the New York Design Center, 200 Lexington Avenue between 32nd and 33rd Streets. Continental breakfast will be offered at 8:30 a.m., followed by the program, 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
