I went to BKLYN Designs this weekend and I must say that the exhibition was even better this year than last. The show featured 55 different Brooklyn designers this year, bringing back old faves like Scrapile [2] and BraveSpace [3], as well as adding plenty of hot new up-and-comers like EverySpace [4] and ObjectInteriors [5].

Below are some quick pics so far, for all of my photos from the event, check out my Flickr [6] feed photostream:

This gorgeous “arrange” shelf/vase by EverySpace design [7] is one of my favorite things I saw yesterday. Such a simple idea, yet so lovely.

Another favorite from yesterday was this beautiful green cabinet made by BOA of ObjectInteriors [5]. Every element in the gorgeous cabinet is environmentally sustainable: it’s made from Kirei board, recycled paper and recycled steel. I want one of these!

Brooklyn design duo The Design Can [8] never ceases to impress with their cute takes on homewares. I LOVE this neo-baroque blackbird mirror.

The interior of the main exhibit.

Old Brooklyn favorites Scrapile and BraveSpace both have released brand new designs at this show.

Designer Andrea Claire [9] merges photographs into traditional cylindrical lamps to create these stunning light pieces.

Real kids, such as Max here, seemed to love Igloo’s kids furniture [10]. Kid tested, mother approved..
