last week, after my mom-hair cut (which was later fixed), i stopped by housingworks’ design on a dime event. i have a bit of a phobia about large spaces tightly packed with people, so i thought it would be fun to stop by and meet everyone as they set up and hear a bit about each space. i’m a few days late, but i wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from the event- which asks designers to create rooms, from which people buy items. 100% of the profits go to housingworks, which provides lifesaving services to homeless and low-income new yorkers living with HIV and AIDS. the rooms i loved the most were created by the visual display teams from housingworks (below), who decorated using items that had been donated to housingworks shops across the city. i hope you’ll enjoy this little tour through this year’s design on a dime, be sure to click “read more” below to see additional, full-sized images after the jump!
*unfortunately my map of the show has escaped me- i’ll add designer names to all of these as soon as i can find it. hunting now…
