Brooklyn Design Hightlights

I only had a few hours yesterday afternoon to go through Brooklyn Designs, but it was enough to spot a few gems.

My heart nearly stopped when I disovered Big Prototype’s Dining Table/Coffee Table. I love anything that folds down or simply has multipurpose.


John and Sara folded the table into a coffee table in a matter of seconds and I was completely smitten. If we had the space, this would my table of choice. It’s not up on their site yet, but should be shortly.

Another furniture highlight was the freestanding fractal drawer cube by Takeshi Miyakawa. To me, this piece defines a perfect mix of art and design. I absolutely want to have one of these in my future big beautiful minimalistic design studio.


Last winter, I stopped a woman walking down the street because of her wool hat. I was THRILLED when I discovered that same hat at Brooklyn Designs yesterday. Created by Pip Squeak Chapeau. And even though summer heat is just about to hit us, I couldn’t help myself but buy a black version of it. Wheeee! Plus I bought some unbelievably cute linen dresses for little Ella Joy. Couldn’t find them on her site.


I was thrilled to see so much activity at Joey’s booth. His sorapot is a beauty. I love the packaging he created. Such a perfect offset to the sleek feel of the pot. Hat tip to young entrepreneur Joey!


I was also happy to see Tina Shoulders from LaidBackHome. Her latest pillow creation, the Breakdancer Pillow caught my eye. At first glance, you don’t see what the shapes actually are. Very subtle, I like that.


And then of course, there’s always Lotta Jansdotter. She’s the queen of simple beautiful designs. My current favorite is her mustard colored runner.


And lastly: These removable Wall Bins by Produce Design made me gasp for air. Every cell in my body is screaming: ME WANT!

  1. Looks like a very interesting event, I wish I could go. The folding table is great, very Eileen Gray’ish (in principle)

    I also love that fractal drawer cube, I’m not sure how practicle it is but I would still love it to have by the side of my desk (I’m a sucker for glossy white and light wood)

  2. The Dining Table/Coffee Table reminds me of Ligne Roset’s “Crescendo” table:

  3. i love love love the dining/coffee table! i want want want it!
