Taking place September 9–12, 2021 at the Javits Center in New York City, the fair will present a diverse roster of 300 preeminent brands and draw attendees including top designers, architects, trade professionals, as well as savvy consumers and collectors. Exhibitors and attendees will benefit from the fair’s co-location with The Armory Show, the city’s essential art fair, which features the world’s leading international galleries and works from both modern masters and cutting-edge contemporary artists.
“MADE is an extraordinary presentation of some of today’s leading design talent—all under one roof. Drawing designers and makers from all over—from LA to Detroit to Toronto and Dallas—we are thrilled to be curating such a unique showcase. Exhibitors include much-loved brands such as 9and19, OVUUD, Terranova Designs International, Ben Watkins Studio, Sawyer Made, and Jamie Harris. The fair will function as an incredibly powerful tool for MADE participants—they will have the opportunity to interact with members of the trade, consumers, and industry innovators to present their new products and advance and shape their brands’ trajectories,” notes Kathleen Hogan, NY Luxury Design Fair Director of Sales, MADE.
As one of the most beloved sections of the show’s previous, 20-year-long iteration, MADE is returning in its compelling new evolution, offering exhibitors a fresh, immersive experience—complete with a juried awards program. The show’s recently announced Editor’s Choice Awards will consist of a distinguished lineup of acclaimed editors from leading design and lifestyle publications that will laud the best of multiple exhibitor categories, from lighting to art, seating, furniture, and accessories. In addition to MADE, awards will also extend to the fair’s additional beloved sections: REFRESH, a must-visit area featuring new designs and state-of-the-art innovations in and for the kitchen, bath, and complementing areas, and FURNISH, a luxurious resource for the newest, most spectacular market introductions in furniture, lighting, textiles, and more.
