Design On A Dime

Founded in 2004 by Designer James Huniford, Design On A Dime is an event organized annually by Housing Works to raise money in support of those affected by homelessness and AIDS.  The event challenges interior designers to create unique room vignettes curated with donated merchandise from well-known home decor brands and artists. All merchandise in these one-of-a-kind rooms is then sold at charitable prices to design-savvy attendees. 2017 marked its most successful year: Raising a combined $1.6 million in support of the Housing Works’ mission to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS. Since its inception, the event has raised over $15 million. With two locations, Miami, and New York, bringing together an estimated 100 interior designers, over 700 top home decor brands, and nearly 6,000 guests.

In April 2017 I volunteered to work with 513 Design Studio in creating an animated projection to complement their vignette inspired by the Memphis design movement. Check out Bedford & Bowery’s write up on the night.
