Design on a Dime: Housing Works brings occasion to Brooklyn
Housing Works, a nonprofit, in New York City will celebrate design in Brooklyn and highlight its creators and interior designers when it brings its Design on a Dime event to Brooklyn for the first time this week.
Nineteen top designers, mostly from Brooklyn, will be creating unique room vignettes in Industry City in Sunset Park using custom, contemporary, and vintage furniture they donated to the event. All items are available for sale, up to 80 percent off.
CAVdesign, Jae Joo Designs, Lori-Girl Creations, Michael Bargo, and Sheep + Stone are some of the Brooklyn designers who will be attending, using donated items from enviable resources such as BDDW, Workstead, West Elm, Coral & Tusk.
The event has been held in Manhattan since 2004 and has branched out to Miami this year. Housing Works had been thinking about an event in Brooklyn when a seat became available in Industry City.
Tickets for the opening night on Thursday October 6th are available for $ 100 or $ 250. (Enter “BrownstonerGuest” for a 25 percent discount on your loft ticket.)
There’s also a party on Friday night October 7th with $ 20 tickets. The event, which ends on Sunday October 9th, is free and open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
And if you can’t make it in person, you can bid over your phone.
Housing Works is a non-profit organization that fights AIDS and homelessness. To fund their charitable mission, the group operates more than a dozen thrift stores known for their elegance, including Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope, as well as a popular bookstore and café in SoHo.
