Design on a Dime

Design on a Dime

Design on a Dime is the premiere interior design benefit event!

Due to the evolving pandemic, it is no longer feasible to produce Design on a Dime and the Groundbreaker Awards in 2020.  We will return to our traditional timeframe, next year April 21-24, 2021, where we invite you to again join us for this annual cherished interior design benefit  In the interim, please continue celebrating with us Housing Works’ proud 30-year history fighting for social justice, including supporting our more recent programs in response to the COVID crisis. You can also continue to enjoy shopping our latest clothing, home décor and accessories at our Thrifts online store by visiting 

Design on a Dime, founded in 2004 by Designer James Huniford, challenges interior designers to create unique room vignettes curated with donated merchandise from well-known home decor brands and artists. All merchandise in these one-of-a-kind rooms is then sold at charitable prices to design-savvy attendees. In 2016 Housing Works grew the event nationally expanding it to Miami, Florida for the first time. 2018 marked its most successful year: Raising a combined $1.8 million in support of the Housing Works’ mission to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS. Since its inception, the event has raised over $17 million.
