Leading floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison has donated product to vignettes for Elissa Grayer Interior Design and Francis Interiors at the 13th Annual Design on a Dime benefit in New York City. The benefit, held in April, presented more than 60 vignettes from top designers at the Metropolitan Pavilion
Elissa Grayer Interior Design included Nourison’s abstract Twilight rug (TWI24) in Blue and Ivory in a pink and navy themed vignette. Francis Interiors “Fifty Shades of Grey” vignette featured the Maxell rug (MAE01) in Ivory Grey, Calvin Klein Home Lunar rug in Storm (LUN1), and kathy ireland Home Studio shag (KI900) in Silver.
“As Grey is my favorite color, I wanted to do something monochromatic,” says Francis Toumbakaris of Francis Interiors. Mina Victory Home Accents added to the vignette, with beaded skull & crossbones, basket weave leather and shag pillows and throw blankets in Steel Grey.
For the fourth year in a row, Design on a Dime has raised over $1 million towards the mission to end AIDS and homelessness. Proceeds from Design on a Dime fund Housing Works’ groundbreaking programs and lifesaving services for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS including housing, healthcare, and a supportive community.
Design on a Dime, founded in 2004 in New York City by Designer James Huniford, challenges interior designers to create unique room vignettes curated with donated merchandise from well-known home décor brands and artists. All merchandise in these one-of-a-kind rooms is then sold at steep discounts to design-savvy attendees to benefit Housing Works’ mission to end AIDS and homelessness.
