This year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair was ripe with eye-candy but perhaps one of more alluring items was a new-for-2010 offering from Philadelphia-based eco-furniture maestro Michael Iannone: The bamboo/maple dowel Grassy Shelving unit. Lean, lanky, and totally lovely, it (pictured in detail below and below that at left) pulled me right into the Iannone Design booth.

I’m also a huge fan of Iannone’s other new creations including the Scrappers Nesting Tables (above), the 8 Bit Armoire (below right), and the stunning Cork Filing Cabinets available in twice sizes and designs (bottom). I took a few photos myself but given the quality of Iannone’s work it was hard to get a shot without someone’s outstretched arm or craning neck in the frame ... the place was jumpin'. Luckily, the Inannone Design website has photos of the good stuff both old and new. Enjoy.
