On Wednesday Chicago Home + Garden hosted our third annual Chairs for Charity event at Cosentino Center Chicago. Fifteen local designers were challenged to give old chairs a new life. From Erik Kolacz and Keitha Brathwaite’s classic chrome-framed lounger to Trevor O’Neil’s unconventional reclaimed cork chair and everything in between, the talent and creativity of the all the designers blew us away. Each chair donated was then auctioned off with proceeds benefiting Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids (DIFFA). With 170 good friends, colleagues, and design-enthusiasts in attendance, Chairs for Charity raised $8,175. The night was topped off with delicious drinks from City Winery and Peroni and hors d’oeuvres from Texas de Brazil. We thank everyone who came, supported, and donated.
