Attached are photos from our latest show that took place in New York in mid August. Our newest items, the Printed Charm Bowls, Backgammon Attaché, and Tamarind Bowl made their debut to great success. We knew these would be popular, at the show, and they were well received from our current customers as well as many new ones.
Look for them at your favorite home store that carries AVF near you, or you can always shop on our website. We can ship almost anywhere!
Thank you New York for a great show, and we look forward to our next one in February.
Alexandra recently traveled to Dallas, TX to pay a visit to the local home design showrooms and stores. She had fun shopping for her own home, as well as seeing her own designs in several of the Dallas stores that carry the AVF Brand. Dallas did not disappoint. Her trip highlights included a visit to Dahlgren Duck which carries that AVF furniture line as well as the accessories and then to the Highland Park Village where the beautiful store Madison carries AVF. Madison was created and founded by Interior Designers and sisters, Kirsten Fitzbiggons & Kelli Ford of Kirsten Kelli.
So if you're in the Dallas area, and looking to find some AVF products, visit these two great stores, as well as Gary Riggs Interiors also located in Dallas, TX.
Thank you Dallas for the wonderful and friendly Texas welcome!
Interior Designer, David Hicks, from Australia, was one of the few international designers selected to be a part of the Legends of La Cienega, Windows to the World event. It's an annual design celebration where different interior designers create store front windows up and down La Cienega Blvd in the Los Angeles Design Quarter.
This year, David chose to use one of Alexandra's most popular designs, the Brilliant Console Table as part of his beautiful design located in the store window of Downtown located on 719 N. La Cienega Blvd.
Congratulations to David Hicks and his amazing creation. We were so proud to be a part of it.

Alexandra Von Furstenberg at the Maison 24 Grand Opening Event
To celebrate the Grand Opening of their Park Avenue Store, Maison 24 honored special guests Jimmie Martin and “Moi”! It was a very successful and exciting event, of which, I was so honored to be a part of. Especially, because Maison 24 is now the first and only store in New York to carry the AVF line of furniture in their store as well as all of my home accessories.

Maison 24 is also one of my favorite stores. Brother and sister, Allison Julius and Louis Marra founded Maison 24 and opened their first stores in Bridgehampton and the Fire Island Pines with a concept of mixing traditional and trend-setting home furnishings, men’s and womens’ accessories, music, art, decorative objects, books toys and much more.

Going back to NY for me is of course, a lot like returning home as I spent a lot of my earlier days growing up in this vibrant city I once called home. So I took advantage of the opportunity to roam through MoMA on a rainy day and a stroll through Central Park to experience all of it’s glory.
Of course the highlight of my trip was being a guest of honor at Maison 24 where I had the chance to see many of my good friends and family including Diane Von Furstenberg, and artist Stephanie Hirsch, whose Von Fabulous artwork can be seen and purchased at my own flagship store in West Hollywood. You can see who else appeared at Patrick McMullan’s site.

Thank you again to Allison and Louis at Maison 24, and of course all the Maison 24 staff. It was an incredibly Von Fabulous night!

Alexandra Von Furstenberg designed this Swan chair as part of the The Pink Swan Project to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
"My idea for this design was to see how I could transform the original swan chair into an interpretaion of what I do. The Alexandra Von Furstenberg brand is an acrylic based furniture and accessories house. My inspiration was melted taffy, how could I melt plastic on top of the swan chair to look either like draping, melting or molding...et voila a chair in armored plastic. The brand is best known for its neon colors so what better way to support Breast Cancer than by using our pink neon acrylic. ON the back rest of the chair is the lip logo in pink sealing it with a kiss and a white painted leg to streamline the whole look. It was a joy to participate in such a wonderful cause. Thank you.

The Alexandra Von Furstenberg store is proud to announce that it will be featuring the artwork of Stephanie Hirsch in our West Hollywood, CA store from now through the summer.
In her work, she bridges the gap between fashion and art by utilizing beads and embroidery, which give her artwork a three dimensional depth. The metallic sheen of the medium also serves to remind us that the mantras can shine a positive light on our inner struggles both literally and figuratively.
Come in and see two of her pieces in person, "Keep Calm and Carry On" and "Don't Give Up It's Not Your Style".
