Housing Works’ Design on a Dime to Celebrate Brooklyn
September 8, 2016,
BROOKLYN, N.Y.—Housing Works’ popular benefit event, Design on a Dime, will expand to a third location next month in Industry City, here.
Celebrating Brooklyn art, culture and design, the benefit and sale will feature 20 room vignettes created by both the borough’s established, as well as up and coming, interior designers and makers. Guests will be able to shop vignettes for furniture, art and home décor at discounts up to 80 percent off retail with proceeds benefiting Housing Works’ services, housing and advocacy to New Yorkers living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and homelessness.
The Design on a Dime Brooklyn Outpost will kick off with a ticketed opening night reception on Oct. 6, followed by a special event on Oct. 7 produced by Housing Works Bookstore Cafe. There will be three public sale days: Oct. 7-9.
The inaugural Brooklyn Outpost is chaired by James Huniford, Design on a Dime’s founding chair, along with co-chairs Michael Boodro, editor in chief of Elle Décor; Andrew Kimball, president of Industry City; Douglas Friedman, photographer; and Ellen O’Neill, creative director at Benjamin Moore & Co.
