Design on a Dime in NYC
In years past we had read about Design on a Dime, the ultimate interior design event in New York, which benefits Housing Works, an organization fighting to end AIDS and homelessness. We never imagined that we would be participating and attending the star studded event whose co-chairs included Iman, Charlotte Moss, Nate Berkus and Lara Spencer and was sponsored by Traditional Home magazine.
Last February at the New York International Gift Fair we were approached by interior designer Joshua Ingraham who fell in love with our Dunes and Duchess candelabras and lamps. He was one of 56 designers chosen to create a booth whose contents would be sold to attendees to raise money for Housing Works. Besides including Dunes and Duchess in this incredible event, Joshua also recruited friends Jamie Drake (who donated the amazing writing desk on which our giant hurricane and turquoise candelabra rests), and Studio Printworks who designed the hand-screened wallcovering. Among the other items were a leather chair by High Style Deco, a vintage chrome lamp from Rearview Modern, and a rug by Sacco Carpets. We loved the big ear donated by Steele Luxury Travel and loved that Robert Passal, who had a kickin’ booth of his own at the event, had donated the gilded coffeetable and black and white floor pillows. Here you can see our giant hurricane and turquoise candelabra, our Hitching Post lamp, and our four-arm candelabra lamp among these other beautiful pieces.
We loved showing off the booth and introducing Joshua to Ann Maine, editor extraordinaire of Traditional Home.
We can’t wait to see more of Joshua’s work and to participate in Design on a Dime again!
