The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and WantedDesign Manhattan, a ‘show within the show’ dedicated to high-end North American studios and international emerging designers, will take place at New York's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center May 21-23, 2023.

This will be the first edition of the fair under new leadership. Emerald, the owner and producer of the shows, recently promoted Kevin Gaffney to group vice president of Emerald’s Design Group, and co-founders of WantedDesign, Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat, to brand directors for ICFF + WantedDesign Manhattan.

The leadership team has defined a new vision for ICFF + WantedDesign Manhattan, including a more cohesive and interactive event, better visitor experiences, and cutting-edge design, the company said. The May event will also include an edited floorplan, reorganized by theme and categories, and featuring newly designed spaces to meet, lounge, and eat such as the media lounge, a welcome area, a new restaurant, and a pavilion that showcases American design.
