DUMBO for Design
May 8, 2009
In its seven years, Brooklyn Designs has focused on furnishings, lighting and accessories designed in the borough of Kings. And as the Brooklyn design scene has grown, so has Brooklyn Designs. This year, the event will feature 45 exhibitors, and according to the Times, "is attracting attendees from as far away as Milan, the Netherlands and Japan."
But itís open to us New Yorkers too -- on Friday, Saturday and Sunday -- for an admission price of $15 ($10 for students). St. Ann's Warehouse at 38 Water Street continues as the base of operations, but other events will take place elsewhere, including a "green" exhibition at the Thermador, Bosch, Gaggenau Showroom at 1 Main Street and a few Mother's Day festivities.
If you want to see some Brooklyn design -- but donít want to venture under the Manhattan bridge Overpass or pay $15, the Times offers a listing of top design stores in Brooklyn. The prices may be steep but admission, of course, is free.
