Our signature Chairity…oops Charity Event, Take a Seat is building momentum.  We are actively seeking Chair Designers to take an old chair and give it an extreme makeover.   A chair can also be fabricated out of any kind of material that  may inspire you to get creative.   Everywhere I go I see chairs longing to be part of this amazing event.


  Imagine this oldie done is new fabrics, paint and trim.  How would you give it a new life?  It just wants to help IFDA  raise money to help Veterans and their families through Habitat for Humanity Veteran Build Affliliate South Palm Beach.  It loves auctions.  They are so exciting!  Your newly created chair will be auctioned at a Gala Live Auction at The Boca Raton Museum of Art on October 11,2014.

Please pick me, say these vintage finds.   I want to go to the auction too!  And won’t I look fabulous at Rosenbaum Fine art on October 1 when IFDA has the Kickoff Party to introduce the Chair Designers and their chairs to the media?


I am going to love being on display in the windows of Capitol Lighting in Boca Raton….right there on Federal Highway.  People will vote for their favorite…..oh I hope they pick me!



But I need a lot of help if I am going to the Kickoff Party and the Gala Live Auction.  Won’t you take one of us home and turn the lucky one  into a work of art .  We want to go to the ball like Cinderella!

Help me get out of this closet and make me feel like I am loved again, says this darling….Nobody puts this baby in the corner! (Remember that movie?)


Look at this beauty.  It looks like someone already redesigned her, upholstered legs and all.  I think she is ready for her close up!


Oh did I mention that Take a Seat is a nationwide event with six IFDA chapters participating?  Chair Designers and Patrons will have national exposure in all the Social Media and Press that will be covering this fantastic fundraiser.   Not only will you be helping such an important cause but it’s really going to be lots of fun!

You can find all the details and registration forms right here on our website www.IFDAFlorida.com/takeaseat  and on the Take a Seat website  www.IFDATakeaseat.com you can see highlights from previous Take a Seat events like the auction, chairs and their designers in New York.  The chairs are fabulous!
