IFDAlogo3x2NEW YORK-The International Furnishings and Design Association will hold its IFDA Selects—Out and About at Bklyn Designs event May 6-8 at the Brooklyn Expo Center.

The event will be held in conjunction with Bklyn Designs, which showcases a cross-section of design, architecture and art. Founded by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce in 2003, Bklyn Designs was one of the first design fairs to spotlight the borough’s creative business. It serves as an incubator for emerging designers and as a platform for established brands producing a range of products in the furniture, lighting, tableware, art, textiles and jewelry categories.

IFDA Selects—Out and About at Bklyn Designs will include seminars, workshops and demonstrations. It will also feature the Bklyn Designs Micro Loft, which will showcase small-space solutions with Brooklyn style.

The IFDA Selects initiative supports and promotes the design industry, highlighting new and innovative products debuting at New York City trade shows.
