Nourison Donates Product to Design on a Dime Vignettes
The benefit presented 68 one-of-a-kind vignettes curated by over 70 top interior designers at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Guests had the opportunity to shop the vignettes filled with furniture, homewares, art, and more at 50-80% off retail prices.
Francis Interiors “Memoirs of a Gay-sha” vignette featured the abstract Silk Shadows rug with shimmering highlights and contrasting icy shades of silver, Kathy Ireland Home Malta rug with a traditional bordered delicate leaf and vine design, and Calvin Klein Home Lunar rug detailed with a luminescent radiance and velvet-like texture. A Signature Hardware stainless steel tub was filled with Mina Victory velvet, felt, beaded and shag pillows. Mina Victory laser-cut leather pillows and faux fur and cotton throws also accented the space.
“My inspiration for this year’s theme is a wonderful custom print paper from Phillip Jeffries called ‘Blossom’, which always takes me to Japan, and the ultimate geisha of all times, Kim Chi of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8,” says Francis Toumbakaris of Francis Interiors.
Saudah Saleem Interiors featured the Karma rug with special tonal treatments that give an heirloom-like appearance and Mina Victory Couture metallic laser-embossed hair-on-hide rug in Beige Gold.
Saudah Saleem’s vignette was inspired by color, culture and a touch of glam. “The space featured bold eclectic design, styled in layers, filled with eye-catching saturated jewel tones, silks, velvets and metallic finishes. Layering rugs is such a great way to add color, texture and dimension in a space,” says Saleem.
For the fifth year in a row, Design on a Dime has raised over $1 million toward the mission to end AIDS and homelessness. Proceeds from Design on a Dime fund Housing Works’ programs and lifesaving services for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS including housing, healthcare, and a supportive community.
