Bklyn Designs 2007: At the Annex

A tableful of Lotta Jansdotter's modern tissue box covers

The Bklyn Designs Annex had tons of items for the home, some of which were smaller than that found in the rest of the show. We'd like to showcase a few of them here:

Lotta Jansdotter's tissue box covers are a delight. They're made of screen-printed fabric that wraps two common sizes of tissue box. The covers are fastened by velcro and a handy loop is sewn into the end of the cover, allowing you to hang the box if desired. We loved the bright, modern appearance of these covers.

Glide Inc. was showing off the Twist Together Lamp. It's made of modular blocks that twist together to connect and form a lamp of your own design. We loved the contrasting colors of each individual block and can't believe we got away from the show without a photo. This one's from Cool Hunting.

This table has a small footprint and a giant wood slab top

Valdez Studios Metalsmithing had a small pedestal on display that stopped us in our tracks. The bronze base was narrow and simple. The top on it was at least 2 1/2" thick and was smooth and soft in contrast to the precision of the bronze.
