Take A Seat Florida Charity

The 2014 Take A Seat charity theme is “Helping Heroes at Home.” We chose Habitat for Humanity, Veteran’s Build Affiliate in South Palm Beach as our local charity to support their dedication to the fight against homelessness.  The IFDA Florida chapter has actively participated in builds for years, so it only seemed fitting that we continue our support.  Some of the proceeds will also support chapter professional development.

The 2013 Take A Seat exhibition was held in New York City at Lillian August on May 14, 2013. There were 23 chairs exhibited and auctioned that night. IFDA NY donated the proceeds to Hurricane Sandy and Japan Tsunami relief efforts. Check out the designer folio and see each of the chairs and designers who participated in the event from IFDA NY. We have a collection of photos from the New York event in our gallery.
