Design on a Dime Miami takes off

More than 30 designers will present their artfully curated vignettes this weekend at the third-annual Design on a Dime Miami. Held at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District, the two-day event allows attendees to shop furniture, art and home decor top brands at discounted rates, with proceeds benefiting Housing Works and its mission to end the AIDS epidemic nationally by 2025.

Founded in 2004 by designer James Huniford, Design on a Dime invites designers to create one-of-a-kind room vignettes using donated merchandise from the top home decor brands and artists. Attendees can then purchase the featured product at up to an 80 percent retail discount, helping add to the already $11 million the benefit has raised since its inception.

This year’s Miami edition, which is co-chaired by Elle Decor’s Whitney Robinson, Design Miami chief creative officer Rodman Primack and interior designers Amanda Lindroth and Rudy Weissenberg, kicks off with an opening preview night on Saturday, February 3. To follow will be the Chairman’s Dinner, celebrating 2018 honorees Weissenberg, Primack, and Ximena Caminos, executive creative director and partner at Faena Group.
