No sleep 'til Brooklyn! BKLYN Designs, NYC's hottest showcase of Brooklyn-made home furnishings, is just a few days away. The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce has been putting the finishing touches on the "locally grown, internationally known" event, which will take place from May 8-10 at a new location for 2015 - the 28,000-square-foot Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint. This year's show will be breaking boundaries and delving into new territory - from architecture to technology to fashion to food - with exhibitions, seminars, on-site shopping, food trucks, home tours and more, so give into your FOMO already and make plans to attend!
This year’s show, dubbed BKLYN Designs 3.0, will take place at Greenpoint’s new Brooklyn Expo Center. The three-day event will center around a showcase of the best Brooklyn-made and Brooklyn-designed furniture, lighting and home accessories, but will also feature a full schedule of design talks, hands-on seminars, pop-up installations, Dwell’s Brooklyn home tours, and an opening night party hosted by Metropolis magazine and sponsored by Broadway Stages.
