Sitting Pretty

This past fall, at Chicago Home + Garden’s Chairs for Charity event, 200 designophiles convened at The Tile Gallery in River North to check out—and bid on—some very cool chairs.

Fifteen local designers gave old seats new life for this auction, which raised more than $10,000 for Designs for Dignity, an organization that provides pro bono interior design services and other support to area nonprofits. The chairs were incredible, from Katie Ernst’s girly damask throne to Nathaniel Ross’s manly valet to Angela Finney-Hoffman’s strappy, low-slung lounger. What better way to take a stand for doing good than by taking a seat?
