Calling all design buffs and interior decorators: BKLYN Designs, an annual juried exhibition of some of the best home furnishings coming out of our borough, is back at St. Ann’s Warehouse for three days this weekend. Anyone who has ever fallen into an Apartment Therapy rabbit hole will find inspiration in this year’s stellar collection of contemporary furnishings, lighting and accessories all made or designed in Brooklyn and handpicked by editors from leading home and design magazines. Aside from the main exhibition, which is spread out in venues located throughout DUMBO, there are cool events scheduled too, including a behind-the-scenes tour of a part of Brooklyn Bridge Park that is under construction, a presentation on what’s emerging in tech and design with a senior editor at Wired, and a class that will teach you how to double-dutch the Brooklyn way. Food trucks and happy hours with drink specials will ensure that you stay sated throughout the day, and there are plenty of kid-friendly activities for those who want to make it a family affair. Buy a ticket online for $15, or spend $20 at the door, and you are guaranteed free access to all exhibition spaces and most events.
