Alexandra travelled to San Francisco last week for the Grand Opening celebration of Cavalier by Jay Jeffers. The event featured a champagne reception and trunk show of Alexandra Von Furstenberg's accessories collection as well as a retrospective of the work of iconic San Francisco jewelry designers Alex & Lee.
Proprietors Jay Jeffrers and Michael Purdy gave Alexandra a warm reception and the event was well attended by San Francisco's prestigious design community. If you're in San Francisco, please visit Cavalier Goods located at 1035 Post Street featuring a wide selection of AVF Accent Accessories as well as a viewing of our iconic Brilliant Console.

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.
The AVF Accent Accessory collection was launched in New York at the New York International Gift Fair (NYIGF) back in August 2010, and we have continued to launch our newest and most exciting products there since then.
At this last show we featured our new Snap Frames (picture frames), Oasis Frames (wall hanging frames), Vanity Mirror Trays, and our Limited Edition Lotus Fruit bowl.
Below are photos of our booth where you could see our entire accessory collection.
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.
Auction ends on October 31, 2011.

And with the debut of Accent, to the Voltage and Fearless lines of acrylic furniture, "AVF" has never been so complete. Like Voltage and Fearless, Accent will be forever growing and evolving. The possiblities are endless and soon there will be new and exciting items added to the collection.
The NYIGF show is held twice a year in New York City's Jakob Javits Center and is one of the most well known and largest shows of it's kind. We went to the show, not knowing exactly what to expect, but the next thing we knew we were taking orders and handing out countless linesheets and information about the collection to prospective buyers, designers, and the media. While at the show, we were even covered by Shelterpop.com who reviewed the show and included AVF in the top 100 booths to see!
We opened new accounts in places like New York, Toronto, Connecticut, New Jersey, Miami, Dallas, and many more. We will start listing our retailers on our website in the contact section, so check back soon to find a store near you!
Everyone loved how the trays and bowls were stackable--especially in our beautiful colors. Here you can see the Fearless Acrylic Trays, Charm Bowls, and the NEW TREASURE BOXES, that will also be available soon.
