Events I Love: BKLYNDESIGNS Edition

I had the pleasure of attending BKLYNDESIGNS a few years ago and was amazed at the high quality and variety of the work there. Put on annually by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, this year’s show is being held from May 9 through May 11 and will feature 70 exhibitors in four locations around DUMBO, Brooklyn. (DUMBO is one of those hip acronyms that stands for Down under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass – it has nothing to do with flying elephants.)

The furniture is cutting-edge and top drawer, but so are the textiles, pottery, jewelry, lighting and other crafts on display. Friend-of-Furnitude Palo Samko will be there. I can see he’s already updated his website with some of his new work. You can also check out the work of Daniel Moyer.

If you are in the New York area, this is a must-attend event. I wish I could make it up there this year! Well, there’s always next year. If you can't attend, check out the list of exhibitors to see their websites. You can find BKLYNDESIGNS at
