The 2nd annual IFDA NY Take a Seat charity auction event benefitting Habitat for Humanity took place at Room & Board in Soho last Thursday with a fabulous turn out of over 250 people thanks to the tireless efforts of Tamara Stephenson, Lisa Mc Mahon, Maureen Klein and the entire committee. Designer and tv personality Libby Langdon hosted the event with professional auctioneer Harrie E. Copeland III. Guests bid on 28 one-of-a kind chairs created by leading designers and artisans to a high energy crowd. The entire team from NYC&G was in attendance and the CEO of Habitat for Humanity spoke about the organization. Everything was beautiful - the chairs, the people and the venue!
My amazing two day design escapade: Design on a Dime, The Cloisters and Sleep No More
Last fall, I was the lucky winner of the Weekend in Manhattan Grand Prize at the Voices Against Brain Cancer Walk. I decided to book the apartment during the week to easily attend some events taking place and to get a feel of city living on a weekday, as this is something my husband and I talk about frequently "when the kids are grown."
