Designers and design aficionados are invited to a modern scavenger hunt. Presented by the SoHo Design District and WantedDesign, the first-ever Instagram Design Hunt will be held October 30 and 31 to mark the end of New York’s monthlong architecture program, Archtober. Players must find, photograph and post selected products from each participating showroom. Those who find everything on the list, and post the photos creatively and with the correct hashtags, will be entered for a chance to win products from the showrooms, including home accessories, furniture and lighting, as well as prizes provided by local hotels and restaurants.

“We are thrilled to close out Archtober with the first of many programs we hope to do with WantedDesign. We look forward to growing this partnership and continuing our goal of promoting design in SoHo,” says Dahlia Latif, SoHo Design District president and founding member.
The Instagram Design Hunt takes place Friday, October 30 (11 a.m. to 9 p.m.), and Saturday, October 31 (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
