Showing this Sunday @ the Furniture Festival

We have a wonderfully eclectic roster of furniture makers showing this Sunday, the second week of the Greenjeans Fall Furniture Festival at the Brooklyn Flea.

From the undiscovered to the well established, all six designer/makers we're featuring this week are, once again, based in Brooklyn:

Todd McCollister, whose Catenary Chair is pictured top right, works out of 3rd Ward in Bushwick.

Jim Malone of Counter Evolution NYC uses wood salvaged from closed bowling alleys. He's a regular Flea vendor, but this week he's showing with us at the Furn Fest.

Mark Williams of December Box blends slabs of gorgeous hardwood with found metal elements to create very appealing tables and benches.

Palo Samko is well-known and admired for the gorgeous sculptural details of his work.

Roger Benton of Benton Custom also works out of 3rd Ward, building cool experimental pieces like this walnut three-tiered table. [UPDATE: Roger Benton is showing on Oct. 19.]

David Gibbs of New York Water Tower Furniture makes great benches and tables that show off the gorgeous aged patina of old cedar and redwood water towers.

Scott S. Behr does great tables, shelves, mirrors, and custom installation work in copper and steel.

Come see it all under the big white tent this Sunday at the Brooklyn Flea!

And if you missed the Furn Fest last week, you can see some pictures right here.
