Most people have never heard of it, but Ambiente is one of the largest home décor shows in the world, occurring annually every February. Eleven massive halls (I tracked over 6.5 miles each day at this show!) stockpiled with vendors' goods make it a treasure trove of what’s new and next in design. Products range from tabletop to small appliances to cookware, and even contemporary furnishings. And while it does require an eight-hour flight to Frankfurt (perhaps the least tourist-driven city in Germany), it’s worth it to get a head start on the much-hyped Chicago-based Housewares show that happens the first weekend of March.
Check out the video above for a quick glimpse of the goods you’ll be hankering for this year. I've counted down my favorites; let's see if you agree with my No. 1 pick.
