We are proud to again sponsor Design on a Dime, a fantastic fundraiser benefitting Housing Works, which is an organization working to end AIDS and homelessness. More than 50 top designers have created vignettes and every item in the vignettes – including new housewares, furniture, and linens – are for sale at 50-70% off retail prices. Proceeds of sales benefit a new housing project in Brooklyn which will provide a home for previously homeless adults living with HIV/AIDS.
Suysel de Pedro Cunningham and Anne Maxwell Foster of Tilton Fenwick (one of our 20 New Traditionals) designed a vignette for us (sneak peek above).
The opening reception tonight is completely sold out, which is great because the event is a fundraiser, and the largest crowd ever is expected. But the sale will be open to the public, for free, through Saturday night:
Friday, May 06, 2011 – Saturday, May 07, 2011 10am-6pm
Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St. (btwn. 6th & 7th Ave.) New York, NY
If you’re in Manhattan this weekend, shop these spectacular rooms and support a wonderful cause!
We are very excited to be collaborating with Lonny magazine founders Michelle Adams and Patrick Cline on our online-only edition which will feature totally original content. So we were thrilled when some of the top design bloggers were able to join us for a dinner last week where we introduced our 20 New Traditionals – the fabulous interior designers to watch in 2011 – who are being featured in Trad Home‘s inaugural issue which will be live April 12th.
We had fun celebrating the upcoming launch, especially with such a well-dressed, design-loving crowd! So, a very big thank you to our blogger friends and congratulations to the interior designers selected as our 20 New Traditionals!
Here are some pictures from our dinner at Freeman’s on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Enjoy!
