2010 BKLYN Designs

May 6, 2010

It's that time of year again—spring!—and this weekend BKLYN DESIGNS, a three-day contemporary design tradeshow featuring furniture, lighting, carpeting, flooring, and wall coverings, returns to Brooklyn. There will be dozens of designers featuring all kinds of wares, so if you're in New York, head down and peruse. Once you're there, it's easy to get around—just jump on their free shuttle bus that runs loops between the event and the Brooklyn Borough Hall. If you can't get to the show in person, never fear. We've rounded up a few items from the show in this here slideshow.

  The Safari Kids Table, by Palo Samko, has a black-walnut top and legs and a small leather-covered drawer. It's fully customizable; the chairs shown are black walnut and white oak.
