Express Your Artistic Excellence

The International Furnishings and Design Association’s New England Chapter is pleased to invite you to TAKE A SEAT at the fourth international, award winning, design exhibition which features up-cycled chairs creatively redesigned by area professionals such as architects, builders, craftsmen, and designers of the furnishings and design industry. Students are welcome too.

All For A Good Cause

Proceeds from New England’s TAKE A SEAT  benefit select charities and the Women’s Institute for Housing & Economic Development, a national award-winning affordable housing development organization. IFDA New England raised over $21,000 for WIHED in 2015. We plan on exceeding that goal in 2016!
