Despite a rainy start, BKLYN Designs, the annual home furnishings fair that sprawled over four DUMBO locations — Smack Mellon, the DUMBO Arts Center, St. Ann’s Warehouse and the Tobacco Warehouse — drew in more than 6,500 attendees from May 9 through May 11 to check out the work of artisans who either design or manufacture their wares in the borough. GO Brooklyn agonized over which works to include — too many were left out — but here are nine that were divine.

Bedford-Stuyvesant residents Jenny Argie and Andrew Thornton are the husband and wife design team behind the Argington “Delphi” baby changing table ($795), which protects little fingers with slow-closing drawers. For information, call (718) 218-8508 or visit the Web site www.argington.com.
