NY NOW has announced its brand ambassador Robin Baron, celebrity interior and home furnishings designer, has selected designers to create and curate the market’s Transcend Spaces displays. NY NOW is scheduled to take place August 11 to 14 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.

“Our new Transcend spaces designed by prominent designers are geared specifically to highlight interior design, inspire and transport show attendees,” said Baron.
The Transcend design experience will be filled with products from companies such as Lladro; Bungalow 5; Kim Seybert; Michael Aram; Arteriors Home; Phillips Collection; Nourison; Currey & Co; Alpha Workshops; and From Chef To Table, among others.
“Having Robin and so many other talented designers showcase their world-renowned work at Transcend Spaces is something that we, at NY NOW, are incredibly excited about,” said Kevin O’Keefe, EVP Emerald Expositions, which operates NY NOW. “This inspirational opportunity has increased the designer attendance to the show, which tells us that NY NOW continues to give our attendees what they seek and crave in order to contribute to the Retail Renaissance.”
The Summer 2019 Transcend Talks will be held on the show floor and feature free sessions with a focus on the changing landscape of retail, why social media is important, what’s new in interior design, color trends, inspirational talks about following your passion, in addition to other topics.
