We’re kicking off NYCxDesign week as a media sponsor of Bklyn Designs, May 8-10, a juried show of furniture, lighting, textiles, and accessories by the borough’s best. Here’s an advance look at some of the highlights.

Located at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, the fair includes design talks, pop-up shops, and installations. It’s free to the trade, students, and media; tickets are $15 for the general public, but Remodelista readers get a $5 discount per ticket with coupon code REMODELISTA5.
