3 Fabulous Events where IFDA NY members were out & about in the Big Apple!

 Happy Holidays 
from the IFDA NY Chapter!
With the fall season coming to a quick close and the busy new year ahead, let's look back at some of the ways the IFDA NY Chapter members continue to keep their fingers on the pulse of design in New York City.  We recently showed you a sample of industry events our members participated in, and now let's highlight three more where IFDA NY chapter members were in attendance...

2. We also stopped into the annual Art of The Table sponsored by Bilotta Kitchen, Traditional Home and Lenox to check out kitchen displays stylized by four area interior designers utilizing Lenox patterns on the tables.

Interior designers who participated in this year's Art of The Table include Robert Passal, James Rixner, 
David Scott & Tamara Stephenson.
3. We kicked off the fall season with an important evening generously hosted by Axor Showroom to thank those involved in last spring's charity event, Take A Seat.  Craftily called Take A Bow the evening was a celebration where we also presented a check to Habitat for Humanity NY.  These were proceeds raised during last spring's chair charity auction hosted at Room and Board showroom with media sponsor NYC&G magazine.  We also Skyped with other chapters around the nation as they prepared to host their own Take A Seat auction.  Additionally, during Take A Bow we raised more funds for Habitat NYC with a lively Chinese auction.  
Later in the fall, we planned and celebrated a well attended and successful Rising Stars event where we honored talents in the industry, and generously hosted at the Kravet showroom in the D&D building.  This evening is worthy of it's very own story, so please stop back for a recap soon.

We wish you a 
healthy & happy holiday season!
