Perc @ designboom Mart ~ ICFF NYC 2013

Springtime Greetings!

Thanks to your support the Perc/FC AmericanHandcraft story continues...  I'm excited to announce the Perc series will be exhibited at the designboom Mart at ICFF this coming weekend!   ICFF, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, is one of the world's premiere design trade shows.  Attracting over 25K design enthusiasts, retail, press and designers to celebrate and showcase 'what's best and what's next.'  In it's 30th edition, the designboom Mart is a juried, group exhibition creating 'a unique interactive platform for emerging and established designers' to share their work.

I am thrilled at the opportunity to exhibit at this show and thank you again...

Wish us well and if you happen to be in NYC, ICFF public day is Tuesday, May 21st, come by and say hi!

if you aren't already, please follow the work and musings of FC AmericanHandcraft on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM
