Chairs for Charity
We’re back with our second sneak peek of some of the 15 chairs that will be up for auction at Chairs for Charity. Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 24, at Casa Spazio (222 W. Hubbard Ave.) and remember to buy your tickets here.
This week we bring you two chairs accented with gold. Gold accents are so subtle and add just the right touch of refined glam. Both these chairs would make a great statement piece to spruce up any space.
First up is Sarah Raskey’s chair (above). Her chair is edgier than your typical abstract floral print by embracing bits of darks and mood, with a bohemian meets glam spirit.
Benjamin Cottrell of Benjamin Cottrell Design used gold accents in a splatter and drip effect for his chair. The metallic gold splatters create a stark contrast to the black chair for an urban, abstract vibe.
