Joining us at the annual Brooklyn Designs show will be visual artist Katie Merz as we unveil our newest collaboration. Drawing inspiration from architecture, the dynamism of cartoons, and her own NYC upbringing, Katie Merz is perhaps best known for her large scale murals like her piece at 80 Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Bunk beds are the easiest solution for homes low on space but with a need to accommodate more than one child in a room. While at times overlooked ceiling heights are crucial to the functionality of this type of room. They can limit the design options available to you.
Today standard ceilings are typically around 8’ to 9’ tall. Below 8’ is low and above 9’ is high. So what options are available in your home?Read More
Levitating off the ground like our Flote Desk and with extensive storage capacity like our Dumbo Desk, this hybrid floating desk has become our new favorite. With clean lines and a sprawling surface space, this desk is suitable for children, adults and anyone in between. Highly customizable, the desk is available in oak, birch, white, and walnut or custom colors.
How does it float?
Using a cleat which the desk “hangs” on installation for this desk is simple. Since the desk is not built into the space it can later be moved into another room.
What makes this desk special?
At an impressive eight feet long, this desk has enough space to hold a large desktop computer and with extra space to write and spread out during work time. Sitting only a few inches shorter than a standard adult sized desk, it is comfortable to use for all ages.
Nine drawers of varying sizes surround the desk to store everything from large books, to pencils and paper. Three rows of shelves are featured above the desktop to for further storage and displaying mementos most important to you.
Two rows of wire management shelving underneath the desk keep the clutter at bay. Here you can store extension cables, modems and more. Rear holes on the surface of the desktop connect to the shelving underneath, keeping the desk as organized as possible.
Every new design starts with a rough sketch.
Created with a pencil on a paper or a pen on a tablet, the sketch is the first representation of a concept. It is a quick and simplified version of what will be further developed. Initially it’s about experimenting until we get the proportions right and we are consistent with the initial ideas we want to accomplish.Read More
