With Design on a Dime now a smash hit in Miami and New York, we're adding Brooklyn to the mix! This fall, Housing Works along with 20 amazing interior designers will celebrate Brooklyn design, culture, and art at Industry City. At this four-day long pop-up, guests can attend events at various ticket levels (or the free public sale days) all the while enjoying jaw-dropping interior design and home decor. And true to Design on a Dime form, all merchandise will be heavily discounted at 50-70% off retail.

Confirmed event chairs include: Douglas Friedman, world-renowned photographer; Andrew Kimball, chief executive of Industry City; and Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief for ELLE DECOR.

Previous Design on a Dime participating designers include: Founding Chair James Huniford, Alessandra Branca, Bunny Williams, Charlotte Moss, Elissa Cullman, Eric Cohler, Jamie Drake, Miles Redd, and Nate Berkus, just to name a few.


Each year, Design on a Dime depends on the hard work of hundreds of volunteers. You can volunteer to help in many ways, from event set up, sales, and breakdown. Individual, corporate group, and student group volunteer opportunities are available.
