Cachet: Take a Seat

One-of-a-kind chairs designed for charity

The DC chapter of the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) is sponsoring its second annual “Take a Seat” fundraiser. During the event, designers, artists, and craftspeople will create one-of-a-kind chairs using found and reclaimed materials. Their creations will be displayed at Room & Board in DC from May 13 to May 28, when they will be auctioned off to the public during a gala evening. Funds benefit American veterans through the charity Your Grateful Nation. ifdadc.com
