Turning an ordinary chair into a work of art or vice versa and how it benefitted veterans through Habitat for Humanity
I recently participated in a fundraising event as I wrote about in a prior post. There were so many incredible chairs I just had to share them with you. The creativity is amazing.
A week before the Gala Live Auction event there was a Kickoff Party at Rosenbaum Fine Art and Decor . It was a fabulous showcase for these artfully created chairs. They were displayed in their gallery as true works of art. Here are some of these outstanding chairs. Take a look.
|The Affirmation Chair” inspired us …”Don’t count the days, make the days count” !|
|“You Can Sit With Me” drew much attention.|
|“The Bone Appetit Seat” high chair designed for dogs! There are stairs up the back, an opening for the dog to enter the seat and holes for food and water dishes.|
I was thrilled to be a part of such an outstanding event. Without all these designers and artists who contributed their talent the Take a Seat fundraiser would not have been such a great success. Each one had something very special to say. They were all amazing. It is just about impossible to pick a favorite. Which one do you like the best? Which is the most creative? The most patriotic? The most elegant? Which chair speaks to you?
I wish I could have shown all the chairs but you can see them including “before and afters” of the chairs, bios of the Chair Designers and the stories behind their chairs if you go to www.IFDAFlorida.com and click on the tab Take a Seat for a drop down menu showing the TAS Designers 2014 tab.
As always I invite you to share your thoughts in the comment box. Send me photos of your "fabcyling" projects! I look forward from hearing from you.
