First Annual ICFF Miami

KGBL was happy to participate in the First Annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair Miami. The show took place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, October 5-6th, 2016.

ICFF Took Miami by storm - quite literally! 

Over 4,000 pre-registrants anticipated ICFF's Miami debut and, despite daunting weather forecasts, 1,600 attendees turned out to experience luxury global design. Albeit abbreviated, we were able to present our furniture for the first day of the two day event. That momentum was interrupted when projected effects of Hurricane Matthew posed serious risks to the exhibitors, partners and attendees. Heeding the advice of weather experts and complying with direct orders from local authorities, the ICFF Management Team was forced to suspend the show.
