First Look | The Living Room at Liberty Fairs New York
With the tradeshow season now fully underway, we’re making our rounds to see what cool things the shows are doing this season. For the men’s tradeshows, it’s important to not only pick up the best brands and showcase them in an impactful way but you also have to innovate as retailers and guys’ interests evolve. Liberty Fairs is doing a solid job of just that with the introduction of The Living Room, an area on the show floor dedicated to home goods and furniture. Rather than sending folks over to Arch Digest, Liberty Fairs as filled that need and introduced select brands to a new market in the process. The brands on this season’s short list were hand-picked by Andrew Livingston, the owner and creative director of menswear brand Knickerbocker Mfg. Co. The Living Room area’s got a great feel with each brand complimenting the next. Brands showing are A-Lamp Design, Corbe Company, Douglas & Co. Detroit, Ethan Abramson, Great Bear Wax Co., Kidd Epps, Leadhead Glass, Luke Lamp Co., Misc. Goods., Mutual Adoration, Slightly Alabama, and Smith Shop Detroit. Have a look at the space in the gallery below and expect some of your favorite shops to infuse some home wares and other items in to their offerings in the months ahead.
