Andreea Avram Rusu’s Confetti Glass Chandelier is reminiscent of a (very stylish) satellite.

At the Architectural Digest Design Show last week in Piers 92 and 94, a thin man in an elegant, window-pane suit strolled past a furniture booth. He looked like a somebody, but who?

Someone ran up to him, exclaiming, “Jamie!” It was Jamie Drake, the award-winning interior designer who has designed residences at many of Manhattan’s most coveted addresses. He was exploring the show, which is a feast for the eyes and the apartment-decorating mind, featuring over 400 companies offering wallpaper, rugs, lighting, and appliances, including big brands as well as independent artisans.

Drake was likely strolling the aisles to find something fantastic for a client’s New York City apartment. Brick Underground had no such agenda, other than seeing what was new and fresh. Here are the 10 most fabulous items that we saw. Hopefully they'll provide some inspiration if you're considering sprucing up your own apartment sometime soon.
