IFDA’s Take a Seat may very well be the design industry’s best-kept secret. Displayed in Scottsdale Fashion Square—Harkins Theatre wing near Thirsty Lion, a gallery space; 16 exhibitors are focused on a national effort to raise money for “Helping Heroes at Home.” Chairs can be viewed from April 19 to May 2, 2018.
The opening event hosted by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Scottsdale showroom was well attended by members of the design and furniture manufacturing industries, featuring one-of-a-kind chairs designed by local super talents, including “Masters of the Southwest Award Winner,” architect Nick Tsontakis.
The two-week show culminates in a black-tie optional evening on May 3 at the Legacy Ballroom. What can attendees expect? An evening focused on auctioning off the chairs to raise money for Military Assistance Mission, a local charity that supports Arizona soldiers and wounded warriors.
