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!

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.

Alexandra Von Furstenberg's Ice Table raises money in support of the Elton John Aids Foundation.
The Elton John Aids Foundation (EJAF) was created back in 1992, by Sir Elton John himself. The foundation raises money to support innovative HIV prevention programs as well as to combat the negative stigma and discrimiation so often associated with people living with HIV/AIDS. Since its inception the foundation has risen over 220 million dollars supporting projects around the world.
For the past 19 years, to raise money for this noble cause, EJAF has held their Acadamy Awards Viewing Party here in West Hollywood, California. At the party, items are donated by various designers, where they are auctioned off to raise money for the foundation. This year, to show her support of EJAF, Alexandra Von Furstenberg donated one of the prized gems of the AVF Limited Edition Collection, "The ICE Table" which we are proud to say raised $35,000.00 during the live auction.
Thank you to the Elton John Aids Foundation for allowing Alexandra Von Furstenberg, LLC to participate in this year's event. We were honored to be a small part of Sir Elton John's big dream.

Back in February 2010, renowned, respected, and published Lucite furniture designer, Charles Hollis Jones came to visit with Alexandra Von Furstenberg in her store.
Charles Hollis Jones and Alexandra Von Furstenberg, both share a love of working with acrylic to create modern furniture that encompass luxury, modernism and function with an artistic point of view. Having driven by the store and looking at Alexandra's designs through the window, he finally made time to stop in to see them in person. He complimented the pieces and introduced himself to us. Unfortunately, Alexandra wasn't in the store at the time, but we arranged a time for him to come back later that week.
There is certainly a mutual admiration for each other's work. Alexandra has often expressed how she was inspired by Charles' use of the material, and he referred to Alexandra's work as, "so alive and vibrant, the energy jumps off the furniture to the observer--it's electric".
