On Tuesday, Oct. 1 and Wednesday, Oct. 2, designers, bloggers, editors, and industry professionals were out in full force at the D&D Building for the annual Fall Market. DDB Fall market 2013, themed “Live from New York,” was a curated two day event filled with discussions centered on the topic of successful New Yorkers in the design world, including showroom panel discussions, product launches, and book signings with the design world’s best.
