Workroom, known for outfitting Hollywood movies shot in town with fabulous draperies, upholstered goods and the like (they also sew up a storm for Chicago-area homes), holds two events December 5: an open house starting at 9 a.m., and “wine and design” from 3 to 9 p.m. At the latter, participate in a raffle benefiting Arts of Life, an artistic community that helps adults with developmental disabilities. While you’re there, check out custom-finish rods from Finial Company (50% off), and trims for drapery and upholstery (20% off). I’ve been to a Workroom party; they’re fun!
