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.
