Interior Design Headlines at This Year’s What’s New, What’s Next

Benjamin Moore’s new showroom at the New York Design Center, located at 200 Lexington Avenue.

For the past 10 years, What’s New, What’s Next has been bringing the latest trends, ideas, and forecasts to the design community at the New York Design Center, cementing its place as a must-attend event for the fall. This year was no different; attendees had an opportunity to pour over a bevy of new products and materials, get their best-loved design books of the year signed, and hear engaging industry presentations. The festivities kicked off at noon and didn’t wrap up until well-after cocktail hour. 

This year, Interior Design co-hosted two panels. Deputy editor Annie Block, along with architecture critic Raul Barreneche, discussed the latest collaboration between SA Baxter and Matt Berman, principal and co-founder of WorkshopAPD. The name of the hardware collection, Crafted Modern, nods to the interplay of historic techniques and contemporary aesthetics in today’s most innovative product developments. 

On a different note, managing editor Helene Oberman hosted a presentation based on Interior Design’s highly anticipated Power Grid section in the September issue. Oberman, along with architects Andre Kikoski, Ayumi Sugiyama of SHoP Architects, and S. Russell Groves, discussed game-changing developments in New York City’s real estate market, including projects like One Hudson Yards, the American Copper Building, and Waterline Square
