DESIGN, BROOKLYN-STYLE.

DUMBO, short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, recently was the setting for a trendy home show. Brooklyn Designs, the annual event featuring the work of designers in Brooklyn, N.Y., was an opportunity to see cutting-edge design and hear great luminaries of the industry speak at the lecture series. The event, sponsored by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, featured the works of 45 designers of furniture, textiles, rugs and decorative accessories. Although small, the show offered a concise view of the talent that is Brooklyn-based as well as their visions of living and the objects needed to fill it.
