By the time the sun sets on Thursday, April 25, Manhattan’s Metropolitan Pavilion will have been transformed from event space into a virtual design hall of fame with vignettes designed by more than 50 of the world’s top interior designers for Housing Works’ 9th Annual Design on a Dime benefit.
The evening marks the grand unveiling of these spaces, the culmination of months spent selecting furniture, paint color and wall accessories in addition to two intense days of installation. Each vignette will be filled with new merchandise donated by a multitude of designers with aesthetics ranging from traditional to minimal and everything in between, all of which is available for 50 to 70 percent off retail price.
Alongside the likes of DH interior designers David Scott Interiors and Cullman & Kravis, Dering Hall will debut a vignette at the benefit, marking our second year of participation in Design on a Dime. The space features more than 15 generously donated pieces and includes an eclectic mix of product ranging from the delicate geometric-shaped Haynes Mirror by Egg Collective to the strong industrial design of APPARATUS’s Compass Chandelier. Below are some of the pieces that will be available for immediate purchase at the Design on a Dime benefit.
All profits from product and ticket sales go toward Housing Works’s mission to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy. This year Design on a Dime will more specifically benefit Housing Works’s newest development, Hull Street Residences, which aims to turn a vacant lot into a home for formerly homeless adults living with HIV/AIDs. Tickets to the opening night start at $200, and are available here. The sale is open to the public on April 26 and April 27 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, New York, NY.
