Attracting a star-studded crowd, the Opening Night Reception is celebrated with hundreds of VIPs, designers, and friends of Housing Works. A-list design enthusiasts mingle with top designers, including event chairs, Iman, Nate Berkus, Lara Spencer, Charlotte Moss and founding chair, James Huniford. Guests will get the first public look at the room vignettes and enjoy exclusive preview shopping, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and live entertainment. Then, the shopping continues with the Free Public Sale, May 6-7.
