The New England Chapter of the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA-NE) held their third annual "Take A Seat" gala and charity auction in Boston at the Royale Nightclub. The event features up-cycled, one-of-a-kind chairs designed by local architects, builders, craftsmen and students in the furnishing and design industry. This year, over $22,000 was raised from the auction to benefit three local charities: Friends of the Children-Boston, The Lyceum Fellowship and The Women's Institute for Housing and Economic Development.
