Housing Works’ annual Design on the Dime benefit returns to New York

NEW YORK, NY (WABC) – Housing Works is hosting its annual Design on the Dime benefit this week, April 21-23, returning to the Metropolitan Pavilion with acclaimed interior designers and transforming 50 previously bare spaces into jaw-dropping experiences .

The three-day shopping experience includes luxury artwork, decor and furniture.

The shopping begins with those with early access, followed by an array of high-class luxury sights and sounds.

“We are thrilled to return to the Metropolitan Pavilion with our first large-scale event in two years,” said Founding President James Huniford. “The design community’s unwavering support for Housing Works – year after year – has been incredibly inspiring. The continued generosity of participating designers and brands has raised millions of dollars to help New Yorkers in need.”

Renowned interior designers Young Huh, Charlotte Moss, Joy Moyler and Miles Redd will co-chair the event this year.

Housing Works will host the Groundbreaker Awards on April 20 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, honoring extraordinary members of the community leading the fight against HIV/AIDS and supporters of LGBTQ rights.

The winners of the 2022 Groundbreaker Awards are actress and activist Patricia Arquette, President of Kering Americas Laurent Claquin and fashion star Bethann Hardison.

“We are proud New Yorkers, and as New Yorkers we have survived and supported each other for more than 30 years, from the height of the AIDS crisis to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ongoing public health crises of racism and poverty,” Housing said Works President Matthew Bernardo. “With the support of our donors and buyers, Housing Works is able to continue its groundbreaking work in health, housing and advocacy.”

Design on a Dime’s list of design’s finest contemporaries will feature a collection of coveted artwork and brand new luxury furniture, offered by hundreds of the most recognized brands and manufacturers in the home market.

Sergio Mercado is a newcomer to the event but a seasoned designer with impeccable taste. Its vignette is simple, with an urban touch.

“Once I know how many walls I have, the layout, then it’s about keeping the pieces and placing them,” he said. “I wanted the artwork to stand out against a dark colored wall. It all sort of holds itself together.”

Items are mostly new, some vintage, some unique. Everything is up to 80% off.

“If people have been stuck in homes, working remotely, this is a great opportunity to refresh themselves and help out at the same time,” said Housing Works chief operating officer Andrew Greene.

Since its inception in 2004, Design on a Dime has raised over $20 million to support the organization’s charitable mission to end HIV/AIDS and homelessness.
