Take a Seat!

May 15, 2015

By Lynda Simonton

The International Furnishings and Design Association’s third annual Take a Seat event features up-cycled chairs redesigned by design professionals such as builders, craftsman, and  interior designers. The furniture is created from an existing chair or built from recycled materials. The clever creations will be on display for two weeks, then up for auction as a charity fund raiser. 

Take a Seat kicks off in New England with a cocktail party at Woodmeister Master Builders on May 20 from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. where people can view the the different chairs. The event will culminate with a Gala Auction on June 3 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Proceeds from the sale of the chairs crafted in New England will benefit the Women’s Institute of Housing & Economic Development, whose mission is to promote economic opportunity and build strong communities by developing safe, affordable, and supportive housing for individuals and families.
