Get Inspired at This Weekend’s BKLYN DESIGNS Show

718-subway-series-lampsBrooklyn-born and bred designers will be showing off their work at St. Ann’s Warehouse during this weekend’s BKLYN DESIGNS show. Benches, lamps, throw pillows—everything in the realm of furniture and accessories will be on display, all with their own unique look, and some that display their Brooklynese with pride.

Editors from magazines including Surface, Interior Design, Inhabitat and New York Magazine chose 45 designers who will be presenting never-before-seen work, with an emphasis on pieces that are smaller and more affordable. A list of exhibitors can be found here. Tickets are available in advance online for $12, and at the door for $15. Students are $10, and kids under 16 are free. St. Ann’s Warehouse is located at 38 Water Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Free shuttle bus service begins Friday, May 7 at 10:00 a.m. at Brooklyn Borough Hall and will run continuous loops all day long to DUMBO. Visitors who opt to take their bike to the event will be able to park it for free at the “Brooklyn Greenway Initiative Bike Park” on Saturday, May 8.

And since BKLYN DESIGNS coincides with this year’s Spring Fling, they’ve partnered with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation for concerts, children’s book readings and arts and crafts activities all from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. this Sunday at Pier 1. There will also be a specially-priced BKLYN DESIGNS Mother’s Day brunch menu all throughout restaurants in DUMBO.

    I was at BKLYN design on Sunday- we go every year and enjoy it immensely. Not this year, however.

    A comment on the exhibit being child friendly– my 5 month old was very hungry and I went to a corner where there was no booth, and out of the way of others to feed her. I sat down on a random chair that was placed in the corner (it was not part of an exhibit), when a security guard came up and insisted I get up, she “needed the chair”. Have you tried to stop feeding a hungry baby? I stood up and continued to feed the baby from a standing position. The security guard stood over the chair like it was the most precious piece of furniture and 5 minutes later, carried it into the press room. I could have sat on it for the 5 minutes it took to feed the baby. I did try to complain to the the guy in charge of security before I left, but didnt really get an apology. Happy Mother’s day BKLYN Design! Child friendly indeed~!

    They really should know better in a neighborhood filled with kids, and with the demographic they are trying to reach….
