Last week FINELL debuted at the NY Now trade show in NYC. The bitterly cold temperatures outside were no match for the incredibly warm reception we received. Buyers eagerly sought out our booth, admiring the collection and exclaiming "Where have you been!?" and "I found my people!"
Our entire team got to travel to the show and experience the much anticipated payoff for our combined efforts. Amongst some tough competition, we were honored to be awarded Best New Collection in the Accent on Design showcase. The award recognizes product design excellence, innovation and creativity. We also were selected for a Blogger’s Choice award. Stylebeat blogger Marisa Marcantonio chose the Hex dish set for its angular form and its multifunctional, oven-to-table capabilities.
Considering it was our first official showing, these accolades were especially meaningful and encouraging. We left NYC feeling accomplished, not to mention ready for celebratory tacos and warmer weather.
