The roster of design celebrities who will come together Thursday for Housing Works’ interior design shopping benefit, Design on a Dime, is the largest in the event’s nine year history.

Tilton Fenwick's 2012 vignette

Located at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea, the benefit event will feature 62 of the world’s top interior talent. Each designer will create a room vignette using new and donated merchandise from high-end manufacturers and dealers.

The items will be on sale for 50-70% off retail pricing, with money benefiting Housing Works, a non-profit with a mission to end AIDS and homelessness.
