Boutique Design New York (BDNY), a fair and conference for the boutique hospitality and lifestyle industry, reported a 65% increase in attendance at this year's show to nearly 13,000.  

Design industry professionals explored new products from nearly 600 exhibitors and learned about the latest trends and issues in hospitality from sessions covering innovation in design, wellness and mindfulness, navigating inclusivity, and the future of hospitality. While sustainability in design has always been important, it became more central in both products and projects at this year's BDNY.

At the ReWild by Westin Designed Space, the environment was top of mind with abundant greenery and features like The Well, which contained a plastic-free source of water for visitors. Other trends which appeared throughout the exhibitor booths included a focus on 1970s-themed shapes and colors and curved silhouettes among chairs, sofas, and more.

The next edition of BDNY will be held at Javits Center, November 12-13, 2023.
