Top Ten: Seen at NYIGF

The New York International Gift Fair opened this week in New York City and designers, buyers and press alike have been perusing the aisles in search of the best new item in the design, home and gift sectors. While furniture isn't the tradeshow's focus, NYIGF was full of inspirational lighting and decorative products that caught our eye.
