BKLYN Designs show this weekend

Looking for something to do this weekend, beyond the Brooklyn Heights Association house tour? It’s the seventh annual BKLYN Designs show in DUMBO, which is a three-day event showcasing contemporary home furnishing designers, speakers, a tour of DUMBO’s galleries, and a special house tour.

The main exhibit is in St. Ann’s Warehouse at 38 Water Street, but there will also be a children’s furniture display at Jane’s Carousel next door and a “green” furniture show in the Bosch, Thermador, Gaggeneau Showroom at 1 Main Street.

Tickets are available in advance online for $12, and at the door for $15 (or $10 for students with valid student ID). Tickets for the DWELL Brooklyn Home Tour, which includes admission to BKLYN DESIGNS and Friday night’s Launch Party, are sold separately and are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. A full list of the exhibitors is at the event’s Web site at www.bklyndesigns.com.

The Brooklyn Paper points out that there won’t be a commercial pavilion, but still scoped out the best bets for under $300 (in most cases).

    I don’t for the life of me understand why they always do this a full week before ICFF every year. If they want to get high profile and have it be a well attended event so that people who fly in from around the world for ICFF can see what is happening in brooklyn, I don’t see why they don’t make it more like the Salone Satellite in Milan where people go to see the alternative stuff away from the main show. and if they don’t want it to be part of ICFF why not make it later on so that it can stand alone. Right now it’s just like ICFF’s estranged younger sibling.
