WantedDesign Manhattan

WantedDesign Manhattan is a trade event. Each year at WantedDesign Manhattan, through visiting exhibitions and programs such as the Schools Showcase, Launch Pad, Look Book, and Wanted Interiors, thousands gather to see what’s new, fresh and upcoming in design.

Acquired by Emerald in 2019, WantedDesign Manhattan takes place in conjunction with the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) at the Javits Center. For 2023, Claire and Odile will take on the lead as brand directors for both shows.

The next edition will be held May 21-23, 2023
