Report from Week 3 of Fall Furniture Festival

Week Three of the Greenjeans Fall Furniture Festival, held at the Brooklyn Flea on Oct. 19, was fantastic!

See all the pictures here.

This week we featured work by seven designer/makers based in Brooklyn:

4Korners (Scott Raffaele, table pictured top right)
Aswoon (Susan Woods)
Benton Custom (Roger Benton)
Counter Evolution NYC (Jim Malone, who also showed on 10/12)
Nightwood (Nadia Yaron and Myriah Scruggs)
Uhuru (Bill Hilgendorf and Jason Hogarth, who also showed on 10/5)

Over 4000 visitors passed through the Flea on Sunday, braving the suddenly seasonal weather to see great local furniture, taste delicious food, and enjoy the always evolving scene that is the inimitable Brooklyn Flea.

We also enjoyed a third welcome visit from Apartment Therapy, who beat me to the punch this week with their blog coverage of the Furniture Festival booth. So did Reclaimed Home. Thanks, guys!

This coming Sunday is the LAST DAY of our Fall Furniture Festival, and it's a biggie -- I have nine furniture makers on tap to show! So come on by and check it out!

(The list of this Sunday's exhibitors will be posted soon... stay tuned.)

Taking a card for future reference to Counter Evolution NYC.
