Uhuru, a design and build furniture and interiors company run by Jason Horvath and Bill Hilgendorf, two young fellows who met at the Rhode Island School of Design. After years of doing custom work, they’ve decided to launch their own line out of their Red Hook workshop. Standouts include the 1×1 chair, whose sleek steel frame can be paired with a choice of materials, including wood and felt, and this awesome stool, crafted of wood scraps and a bicycle rim. Funny, Jason lives in the same building as my coworker Rose. We chatted about the joys of living in a mostly Chinese building, particularly the funky food smells.

This year, the show is supplemented by blockparty, a showcase for 14 Townhouses, a new development in Boerum Hill. One of the sleek townhouses has been entirely finished and furnished by local designers, and all this beauty can be yours for the bargain price of $2.4 million
