We ended the weekend rush last night at a few packed events featuring work from local designers.
American Design Club showed pieces in the windows of the Design Within Reach Flatiron location, where we ran into some of the charter members of the organization, including Kiel Mead, Charles Brill, Theo Richardson, Alexander Williams and Annie Lenon. After lots of hi's and bye's and a stop at the phenomenal taco stand on Bedford + North 1st (or thereabouts), we moved over to the shared courtyard of The Future Perfect and A&G Merch in Williamsburg, where we enjoyed the cool air and checked out exclusive work from Jason Miller, Scrapile, Claudia + Harry Washington, and Joel Voisard.
