“Each year, ICFF sets the stage for thoughtful discussions among the 33,000-plus that attend New York Design Week,” says Bill Darcy, CEO of NKBA. “This year, the NKBA K+B Insiders brought their outstanding knowledge of design to the ICFF Talks to discuss designing for a modern lifestyle, with a focus on how technology trends in the kitchen and bath have altered the way we live. All experienced and up-and-coming designers can advance their careers substantially from affiliating with NKBA,…from networking with the most talented minds in the industry to certifications that help inform and land new business to tapping into our vast resources and continuing-education programs to feed the desire to keep learning and creating beautiful, functional spaces beloved by clients.”
