Last Tuesday Metropolitan Home and the New York Design Center hosted the sixth annual Design Cares charity auction and holiday-cocktail party. Guests came together to participate in the silent auction benefiting the Partnership For the Homeless’s Furnish a Future program. Furnish a Future is New York City’s only free-furniture bank. Since 1992, Furnish a Future has helped more than 22,000 formerly homeless families turn bare rooms into comfortable, functional homes.
Nearly 150 modern-luxury home furnishings, home accessories, and lifestyle goods from some of the world’s top designers and companies were displayed for guests to bid on. Generous donations were provided by such companies as Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams, Lulu DK for Elite Leather, American Leather, CB2, Thomasville, W Hotels, Baker Furniture, and the Conran Shop.
What a great event for this holiday season!
