Walnut Creek, CA, Sept. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New York City will be the hub of the design world from October 3-5, 2023, as Gladysfox, the premier online design destination for consumers and trade professionals, presents the first Gladysfox Design Experience at NeueHouse Madison Square. This three-day exhibition will showcase nine top design brands in the furniture and lighting space, welcoming FLOS, Stickbulb, Buster + Punch, Vistosi, Michael Anastassiades, DESIGNHEURE, Moooi, Louis Poulsen and Audo Copenhagen, along with media partners Interior Design and The Grand Tourist.

These brands will present showcases with a special emphasis on bespoke, custom designs displayed in an experiential gallery, giving visitors the full sense of the creativity and innovation behind each piece. Throughout the exhibition, brands will host immersive talks about their displays, ticketed individually.
