Among the kitchens, prefab units, demonstrations, and presentation stages at Dwell on Design 2013, first-time exhibitor Brook&Lyn shows off impressively detailed handwoven textile art.

Founder Mimi Jung of Brook&Lyn hasn't lived in Los Angeles for long (see her studio name for a hint at her previous home base), but her range of earthy, woven textile art mixes California craft with East Coast rigor. Jung, who also makes geometric modern jewelry, started weaving a year-and-a-half ago after taking classes at Textile Arts Center in Park Slope, Brooklyn. She moved from a floor loom to the framed, hand loom style of weaving, and incorporates several textures and colors of yarn in each piece, hung from a thin copper rod.

Brook&Lyn is the Los Angeles-based design studio founded by Mimi Jung, who is making her first appearance at Dwell on Design.

Brook&Lyn's first furniture piece, the Rya bench, makes its debut at Dwell on Design. Incorporating patches of handwoven cotton yarn into a solid maple bench, Rya is a whimsical take on a classic Shaker silhouette.
