Seat’s Taken

I love design—I love writing about it, thinking it, looking at it, you name it. But I am not so great at actually designing. You wouldn't say I am a crafty person, to put it mildly. Which is why I was a bit worried when I was asked to design a chair for Chairs for CHAIRity, sponsored by Hold It Contemporary Home in San Diego. Basically, they give you a chair of your choice, you design it, and it's auctioned off to benefit the local chapter of Make a Wish. Mind you, I was "going up against" some of the best local design talent (Michael Soriano, Davis Krumins, Esteban Interiors). So last night at the packed event and auction I was so excited when someone else besides my supportive husband put a bid (and won) my "Kiss Me" chair. Who would have thought three yards of felt could look so good.

Here are some of the other wonderful chairs designed by local designers, artists, and media people (and some of the night's "big winners").
