Yesterday morning, the Inhabitat team gathered in DUMBO for the opening of BKLYN Designs [2] our favorite locally-grown furniture design show [3]. In its seventh year, the annual showcase of locally-designed furniture provides visitors with sampling of the best in the borough. We saw lots of our old green BKLYN favorites such as Brave Space [4] and Uhuru [5] as well as plenty of exciting new faces and designs — and were especially excited to see what this year’s Pratt students had in store for us. This year’s show, while smaller than last year, proves once again that functionality, eco-sensitivity and beauty can come together under a smart designer. If you live in New York City, we hope you make it out to DUMBO before the weekend is over, to catch our BKLYN Designs Editors’ Choice Awards [3] – which will be given out on our green design walking tour [3] at 3pm on Sunday. To entice you, here are some of our favorite designs from the show…
