Ikea PS unveils new products at ICFF

International Contemporary Furniture Fair, ICFF 2009, a world wide wonder for design disciplines is currently underway at New York City’s Jacob K. Javit Convention Center. Ikea PS introduced more than 20 new products at the expo. I thought I would start with the ones that stood out immediately. The fair is open to public on May 19.

Maskros. This dandelion inspired pendant light is my favorite. I cant wait to get one. When lit the shadows on the wall reflect a dandelion ready to be scattered by the wind.
