NYCxDesign: Our Favorite Finds from BKLYN Designs

It's NYCxDesign Week here in NYC which is a city-wide celebration of all things design. There are hundreds of events, many of which are open to the public, that seek to drive awareness to emerging design as well as to inspire the designer within us all. 

For our purposes at Spruce + Furn, these events give us the opportunity to see aspirational interior designs as well as the chance to do some serious Furn(iture) Scouting for our clients. Over the next week or so, we will share some of our favorite finds here on the blog and via our Instagram account

To start, we kicked off the week last weekend at Brooklyn Designs, a design fair focused on spotlighting Brooklyn-made home furnishings. Some of our favorite finds included:
 

Nuala Workshop

Modern, sophisticated shapes in luxe finishes. A must see for a urban, contemporary spaces. Our favorite pieces were the Float Bookshelf (a great room divider!) and the chic, Misha Chairs.

Robert Sukrachand

It's all in the details with these simple, yet stunning pieces in modern silhouettes that will stand the test of time.  You have to see the Walnut Cabinet live to really understand the time that goes into creating it.
