SHOPPING HOME STYLES FROM THE CONNOISSEURS
The past weekend brought out droves of New York’s avid style hunters who queued the avenue-wide block of W 18th Street to the entrance of the Metropolitan Pavilion for this year’s edition of Housing Works’ Design on a Dime benefit and sales event. Vignettes conjured up by illustrious interior designers showcased an array of alluring spaces and curated furniture, home décor, and art pieces sourced from their respective vendors, donors, as well as prominent artists and home brands. Through the years, the event has become a highlight of the season for witnessing the virtuosity
Of the innumerable functional or ornamental pieces there, here are just a few sensational pieces:
Bungalow 5 – a Bungalow 5 Elba lounge chair in oatmeal with comfy angled back and curved seat deck on a mahogany frame for a handsomely modern take on mid-century sophistication.
Justin Charette Design – an arresting photograph of the designer’s tattooed and provocatively flexed arm by prominent lensman Greg Salvatori who renders his subjects’ essence with gimlet eyed brio to lend any space a truly personal touch.
Patrick J. Hamilton – a Circa Table Lamp from Lamps Plus in all black ceramic with cast iron finish and topped with a sleek drum shade lights up any space with unassailable polish.
Cathy Hobbs – a solid wood multi-level display and book case from New Pacific Direct in brushed smoke with varied compartment sizes for versatility and flair
