Design on a Dime

Design on a Dime

Design on a Dime is the premiere interior design benefit event taking place annually in New York and Miami!

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. 2016 also marked its most successful year: Raising a combined $1.5 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 $12 million. With two locations, Miami, and New York, Design on a Dime will bring together an estimated 100 interior designers, over 500 top home decor brands, and nearly 6,000 guests.
