For only four days in March, some of the world’s most influential brands and thought leaders converge in New York City to discuss all things design. Culture Trip brings you highlights on the immersive design talks and what to expect for this year’s show.
The Architectural Digest Design Show has been a New York staple for nearly 17 years, bringing together people from all over the world to showcase trends, ideas, and design movements that impact the future of the industry. Held at Piers 92 & 94, this year’s AD Design Show will feature more than 400 luxury brands, ranging from furniture, wall coverings, art, lighting, design services, and more.
This year’s new talk series includes an impressive line-up of seminars and discussions throughout the weekend, with topics ranging from fashion’s impact on interior design to trending color palettes and legacy design families. More than 30 design visionaries will take the spotlight for the talks over the course of the weekend on the main stage of the show floor.
