Inhabitat was on the scene all three days of BKLYN Designs [2] this weekend and we have a lot of great finds to report back to you. The BKLYN Designs furniture exhibition [3], which is held in DUMBO every year in May, is not a large event by any means (unlike the upcoming International Contemporary Furniture Fair [4] at the Javitz center this weekend). However, what the small, carefully curated show [5] lacks in scale, it more than makes up for in the quality of the work on display. Every year there are a handful of designers that knock our socks off, and the best part is that they are always local designers, using locally-sourced materials, sustainable production methods, and high-quality hand-craftsmanships.

This year we were especially impressed with the designs coming out of Pratt students [6], as well as some new designs from old favs like Brave Space [7], Uhuru, [8] and Argington [9]. We’ve got lots of pics of the event in our Inhabitat Photo Gallery > [10]
