Bklyn Designs is back and will kick off New York Design Week with an exhibition of contemporary furnishings and home accessories designed or manufactured in Brooklyn. “Bklyn Designs is a major platform — not only emerging talent, but for young designers who are breathing creative life into New York City,” said Wendy Goodman, design editor at New York Magazine. The three-day show in Dumbo is juried and open to the public. It will include furniture, flooring, lighting, wall coverings, accessories and tabletop.

Typically the exhibitors are smaller than the ones who show at the well-known ICFF show in Manhattan the same week (aka the International Contemporary Furniture Fair), and the cost for exhibitors is less. Applications for exhibitors are due Jan. 4. The show takes place May 10 through 12 at St. Ann’s Warehouse.
