Brooklyn Designs 2010 Green Finds: Colleen and Eric


It was a sunny and perfect afternoon on the Brooklyn waterfront (specifically, DUMBO) last Thursday, and also the opening of Brooklyn Designs, the annual local-BK event that highlights the borough’s most creative furniture and home decor.

Inhabitat has the full coverage of the event and all the green furniture (plus their awards!); I focused on the fun and fabulous (and green, of course) decor items that I found. First up, Colleen and Eric!

Colleen + Eric are brand-new to the furniture and design show, but their creations were some of my favorites. “Hold on Tight” Shelves, North Star End tables Flock of Birds wall decals ($55) and fab BKLN totebags ($35). See video below for close-ups and deets!

  1. Please tell me how these pieces are eco-friendly?

  2. If you watch the video, Eric describes how he uses North American-harvested wood that’s colored and finished with non-toxic materials. The bags are organic cotton, grown and sewn in the US, etc.
