New York City charitable institution Housing Works will celebrate Brooklyn design and highlight its makers and interior designers when it brings its “Design on a Dime” event to Brooklyn for the first time this week.
Nineteen top designers, most from Brooklyn, will create one-of-a-kind room vignettes at Industry City in Sunset Park using custom, contemporary and vintage furnishings they have arranged to be donated for the event. All the items will be for sale, for as much as 80 percent off.
CAVdesign, Jae Joo Designs, Lori-Girl Creations, Michael Bargo, and Sheep + Stone are some of the Brooklyn design minds who will be participating, using donated items from such enviable resources as BDDW, Workstead, West Elm, Coral & Tusk.
The event has been held in Manhattan since 2004 and this year branched out to Miami. Housing Works had been mulling a Brooklyn event when a space became available in Industry City.
