Luxury: Redefined and Redesigned
The Decoration & Design Building hosted its Fall Market 2018 in the heart of Manhattan’s Design District to discuss this season’s theme, Luxury: Redefined & Redesigned. Owner Charles S. Cohen opened the two-day trade-only event with his perspective of the evolving definition of luxury resulting from the design headquarters’ carefully curated programming and discussion. The Fall Market 2018 saw an exponential growth in attendees, welcoming over 3,000 members of the trade, and a wealth of programs, including six keynotes, 21 in-showroom programs, one special event, five cocktail receptions, 118 open houses and 14 experiential events. Top editorial voices, leading industry trade organizations, and dozens of design influencers convened for the DDB Fall Market 2018 to discuss the future of luxury, redefined and redesigned by interior design’s top to-the-trade companies.
Semiannually, the DDB dedicates its over 130 showrooms—representing over 3,000 leading manufacturers—to a relevant topic in design to incite industry-improving change. Positioning itself at the helm of design, and to fit the theme, the DDB’s Fall showrooms were decked in sophisticated décor and luxury furnishings which inspired intellectual discussion to redefine the luxury trade industry. Great comfort, opulent aesthetics, and a world of ideas surrounding luxury living were up for discussion between media gatekeepers, highly-esteemed design experts, plus luxury lifestyle managers, connoisseurs, and innovators.
