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. You can also check the chapter’s blog, the IFDA Take A Seat Facebook page, and the IFDA NY Pinterest board for even more pictures and news about the event.
