If you’re in the market for well-made furniture built with reused materials, you’ll definitely want to check out this year’s BKLYN Designs showcase of Brooklyn-born furnishings in May. One of the show’s prime purveyors of understated, recycled design, Bien Hecho is a woodworking studio founded by John Randall in 2006. We’ll definitely be looking for Randall’s elegant tables made with salvaged hard and soft woods at the event – read on for a sneak peek!

We don’t want to knock anybody in particular, but it’s no secret that furniture made today is not nearly as robust as the fine-crafted pieces of yore. Bien Hecho bridges past and present with contemporary designs made with quality wood such as cedar and pine harvested from water towers and other sources. A devoted Brooklynite who genuinely cares about the environment, Randall delivers furniture that is bound to enhance any home or office.

Stay tuned as we preview some of our other favorite local designers who will be showcasing their work at BKLYN Designs 2013 – one of the most important furniture festivals in New York City.
