11th Aug 2018
NY NOW® has a reputation for collecting the most exciting home and lifestyle makers and products. From this Sunday, August 12, seven Irish design brands will be joining their ranks as part of the Accent on Design® area. Each was carefully selected by a jury, and it’s an exciting opportunity for them to gain exposure in the American market. We’re always championing Irish design, so it’s great to see this recognition on an international scale. Here are the seven brands displaying their wares in the Big Apple.
