and… more party shots from this years silent auction, where the wandawega chair (hearth chair) was an entry…. check out the whole story here
nathaniel ross wrote up a great review on the party: (thanks, nathaniel! we loved your chair last year 🙂
“Before you throw away that wobbly old stool, or that faded easy chair with Aunt Maggie’s favorite pattern on it, consider giving it a second chance at life with a good sanding, some new screws, and dazzling new fabric! We recently visited Chicago Home + Garden‘s inspiring annual event, Chairs for Charity, where 15 top designers transformed the old into something breathtakingly new.”
