NY DESIGN FANS GET READY!!!

One of our favorite springtime events, BKLYN Designs [2], is coming to town THIS WEEKEND, and we couldn’t be more excited! Locally sourced and inspired, the BKLYN Designs furniture fair captures a side of sustainable design that is near and dear to Inhabitat’s mission – drawing local designers [3] together into a familiar, yet fresh, environment to celebrate design innovation. This year is especially exciting as four of our Inhabitants (Jill, [4] Ali, [5] Mike & [6] Abigail) [7] are gearing up to scope out the scene [2] and partake in eco-conscious events during this design extravaganza. And, of course Inhabitat will be there from start to finish to report back to you on the best in sustainable design!

MOTHERS DAY GREEN DESIGN WALKING TOUR – Sunday May 11th @ 2pm [8]

Your favorite Inhabitat editors Jill and [4] Abigail [7] will be leading a Green Design Walking Tour this coming Sunday. In honor of Mother’s Day, it will be a mom-focused, family friendly event, so bring your kids, your mom or whomever else to learn more about local sustainable furniture design with the Inhabitat team. The tour will fill up fast, and we have a max of 15 spaces, so if you’d like to partake, please email us at to sign up inhabitat at gmail.com.

We are excited to see the return of Inhabitat favorites BraveSpace [9], Daniel Moyer [10], Oso Industries [11], and Uhuru [12] to BKLYN Designs, as well as many of our other favorite designers that we’ve featured on Inhabitat [2]. More than 70 local designers will be exhibiting at this year’s event, making this the biggest BKLYN Designs to date. We will be bringing a few “sneak peeks” of brand new designs to Inhabitat every day this week so stay tuned! And of course, starting this Friday, we will be bringing you live coverage from this fantastic sustainable design bonanza.

We will bring the best of BKLYN Designs back to Inhabitat, but we also invite you to join us in Brooklyn if you live in the area. This year, in addition to all of the exciting eco-design innovations and earth-minded events, new moms Inhabitat Editor-in-Chief Jill Fehrenbacher [4] and Art & Style Editor Abigail Doan [7] will be sharing their unique perspectives on furniture and design geared towards families and children…
