ASID NY Metro hosted a tour of the kinder MODERN gallery in New York City as part of its Emerging Designer Events series. Lora Appleton, the kinder MODERN founder, led the group on the tour, showcasing the children’s vintage design collection, the manufactured collection and the gallery’s newest rug collection, Kinder Ground. 

“I was thrilled to host the ASID Emerging Designers at kinder MODERN,” said Appleton. “I found the group very insightful and thoroughly enjoyed sharing my collection. We talked quite in-depth about my most beloved subject: child design, and the historical and current importance. I look forward to future ASID fun.”
