furniture fair for you?

Monday I went to ICFF at the Javits Center - way out on 11th ave at 35th street.  What a gross, weird building.  The exhibitors were simlar to those last year- but I did have a few favorite things.  
The big paper lamps are always cool.
 And in the Japanese design area- I loved this little kit to teach kids table manners.  Each bamboo plate and piece of flatware had laser etched the corresponding course.  very, very cute.  
The seal (although a little creepy) was also very cool.  It is a robot designed for places that don't allow pet therapy.  It just looks like a stuffed animal- but responds to different types of touch and sounds.  its like a pet that doesn't eat or poop!  awesome! :)
