The enchanting Fig & Fable coffee bar shown here was featured last year at the Boutique Design New York (BDNY)’s annual exhibit. Each fall, more than 8,000 designers, architects, purchasing agents, hoteliers, owners and developers gather together with 750+ inventive manufacturers for the annual trade show and exhibit. During the exhibit, design teams create spaces such as Fig & Fable to showcase design elements and products specific to the hospitality industry. Exquisite lounges, cafes and other gathering spaces are shown throughout the exhibit floor. Each space is created by a leading hospitality design team using products from multiple BDNY exhibitors and sponsors. The outcome is a unique collaboration of industry innovators using today’s hottest products. The results are stunning! The Fig & Fable Coffee Bar shown here features products by sponsor and Excel Marketing product line: Fairmont Designs.

Fig & Fable Design Concepts and Collaborators

Draped in lush greenery and effervescent lighting, Fig & Fable envelops guests with its whimsy garden-like charm. Inspired by the iconic story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, this space features vibrant emerald green fabrics, warm wood tones, and brushed brass finishes that sit upon a bold, over-sized floral carpet. Patrons enjoy areas to lounge, connect, and engage. The space offers an experience like no other, catering to both coffee and cocktail drinkers alike. Fig & Fable is a flexible destination with an appeal to everyone no matter what time of day.
