2006_05_13_bklyndesign.jpg Like so many things, good design is like pornography: you know it when you see it. And seeing it in person is always more exciting then looking at pictures.

The problem is that you don't often get a chance to go and actually see high-design stuff half the time (well, we don't). Enter the third annual BKLYN Designs show which is going on this weekend in DUMBO.

BKLYN DESIGNS™ exhibitors are selected by a jury, which includes prominent designers as well as editors from leading design and shelter magazines. All exhibitors will show their newest made-in-Brooklyn collections. For many, it will be their very first trade show exhibit. This gives attendees a chance to be among the first in the world to see the new design trends as they are being set.

Tickets cost $12 bucks and you can peep a full list of the exhibitors here.

Can't make it but want to know who steals the show? Apartment Therapy is promising updates over the weekend.
