NEW YORK, NY -- After a long pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ceramics of Italy is excited to return to New York’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from November 14 to 15 for a special edition of ICFF (the International Contemporary Furniture Fair). Organized by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency, the Ceramics of Italy Pavilion will feature 10 premier brands showcasing the latest designs and innovations in Italian ceramic products that debuted at Cersaie.

ICFF is the premier event for contemporary design in North America, serving as a platform and key moment for global brands to launch new products and connect with professionals in the design and architecture industries. The last edition hosted more than 900 exhibitors from 60 countries and 38,000 visitors. Normally held in May, ICFF + WantedDesign decided to host a special edition of the show to co-locate with BDNY (Boutique Design New York), the leading trade fair for hoteliers and hospitality designers. The return of ICFF also fortuitously synchronizes with the long-anticipated lift of the travel ban on international visitors who are anxious to get back to business in the North American market.

Inside the Ceramics of Italy Pavilion, visitors can see the latest tile trends and novelties that recently launched at a very successful edition of Cersaie, the world’s premier exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings that took place September 27 through October 1 in Bologna, Italy. Featured brands in the pavilion include Altaeco (#3234), Ceramiche Refin (#3139), Decoratori Bassanesi (#3238), Emilceramica (#3143), Gigacer (#3135), Marca Corona (#3137), Mirage Granito Ceramico (#3240), Settecento (#3236), Simas (#3141) and Tagina (#3242).

Representatives from each brand will be available throughout the show to answer any technical questions about the products on display and distribution in the North American market. In addition, visitors can stop by the booths of Confindustria Ceramica (#3145) and the Italian Trade Agency (#3244) to receive more information on the Italian ceramic sector.
