09 Oct DESIGN WITH PURPOSE
Did you know there are 32,000 children registered as homeless in Orange County? It’s hard to imagine this is happening around us when we crawl into our warm beds at night with full bellies. This staggering statistic is something the amazing people of Illumination Foundation are working hard to change.
On Saturday, October 8th, Luxe Magazine and Coldwell Banker partnered to create a fabulous event called The Art of Design to support the important, life-changing work being done by Illumination Foundation. Designers were challenged to create a chair with their own vibe and style. The chairs were auctioned off to raise funds for the cause. I was so honored to be invited to participate along with so many talented designers. The chairs were built and brought to life by the skilled and generous people at PH Design Inc. The gorgeous fabrics were provided and custom painted by Sarah Strader Design.
I was inspired to design the Lady Boss chair to honor the many strong, kind and powerful women in my life. This is for you ladies! I am thrilled to say she sold at auction and raised some generous funds!
While at the event, I had a great time asking the ladies that came by to check out the Lady Boss chair, “What is your Lady Boss superpower?” Here they are!
I’m not surprised Ana Maria Stumpo, owner of PH Design Inc., answered, “All of the above.” So what’s your Lady Boss superpower? I know you have one! Let me know by sharing below. 🙂
I know all of the women above share one very special Lady Boss superpower…..generosity…… as they were all there to support the compassionate, kind work being done by Illumination Foundation. I encourage you to visit their site and learn about the terrific work being to done to break the cycle of homelessness in Orange County. If you are inspired to donate, you can do it from their site, www.ifhomeless.org
This is the Lady Boss wing chair on display at Neiman Marcus before she was whisked off to the charity event. I’m pictured here with blogger and fashion stylist Jasmin Zunzunia.
