IDS 2012: ONEXONE Cherish Auction

The Interior Design Show (IDS) Opening Night Party is happening this Thursday, January 26th from 7-11 pm, and tickets are still available - do you have yours yet? As part of the evening's festivities, IDS will be hosting the Cherish Auction (no affiliation), where attendees will have the opportunity to bid on 20 Julian children's chairs, manufactured by Magis, and re-imagined by talented designers. 100% of proceeds from the auction will be donated to ONEXONE children's foundation.

These re-designed children's chairs are so whimsical!!

For those of you not familiar with ONEXONE, the organization's mantra is "Hope is for Everyone". Through charitable donations, ONEXONE works in partnership with local organizations in places like Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Haiti, as well as both Canada and the United States. The goal of ONEXONE is to ensure each and every child has access to clean water, education, medical care, food and play. If you don't have the opportunity to attend Thursday's event and would like to support ONEXONE, you can help by purchasing an item at their online store or by making a general donation.

A big "thank you" to all of the designers who contributed their time and effort in support of the Cherish Auction:
