A Little Bit of Brooklyn.

This is a little late in coming, since Grace of the always amazing design*sponge sent this to me while I was in London, but it was too good not to share. Grace was one of the judging panelists at this year's Brlyn Designs show, the annual three-day furnishings design event which was held in early May. Grace was so excited by the new work she saw there, she created two inspiring videos of some of her favorites pieces. I completely concur with Grace, and think my very favorite of what Grace shared of the show was the work of Brooklyn-based designer, Palo Samko, a woodworker who designs furniture with humorous hidden, little secrets tucked into his pieces. Palo is from the Czech/Polish border and it's amazing that he is a self taught builder, with no design school training. You can view more images from the Brlyn Designs show on design*sponge, and watch both of Grace's videos full screen here on YouTube. Thanks for sharing, Grace!

I LOVE this piece. I love the modern lines but it also looks like a bit of a throw back to the 70s. I also love the combination of the white and the dark wood. so beautiful. I need more living space for beautiful things like this!! :)
