The BKLYN DESIGNS™ 2010 show starts this Friday, May 7 and runs through the weekend. Since Sunday is Mother’s Day, we’re previewing a few children’s furniture and accessory designs that will be featured at the show. BKLYN DESIGNS™ showcases new and cutting edge exhibitors in Dumbo (various locations in and around Dumbo), and gives us a peek into what’s upcoming in the furniture and home accessory world. A new feature this year is programming dedicated to families with an interactive BKLYN DESIGNS™ Kids Lounge that features children’s furniture designers. Also, the Annual Spring Fling will take place at the newly-opened Brooklyn Bridge Park (Pier 1) with arts and crafts, and music and games for kids on Sunday between 10:30am – 1pm.
Look for the following children’s designers this year:
Throwing Stones Pillows from iglooplay by Lisa Albin Design
Jottable table from UM (a fun table – think dry erase board in a table form)
a bookcase/cabinet from Casa Kids
safari kids table from Palo Samko
table and chairs from April Hannah (a new Dumbo-based designer launching at BKLYN DESIGNS)
