Take a seat. Take a stand! The eighth annual Chairs for Charity 2017, a signature event from Splash in conjunction with Chicago magazine, will kick off this year’s Design Chicago on Tuesday, October 3. Held at Marshall’s Landing in the MART, the event features the best that Chicago’s design community has to offer.

Event organizers have challenged area designers with the task of bringing a vintage chair back to life, all in the name of charity! Guests in attendance will bid on these re-imagined, one-of-a-kind chairs via a silent auction while enjoying light bites and specialty cocktails to complement the evening.

The organization harnesses the power of pro bono design and construction talent using donated materials to breathe new life into existing nonprofit spaces providing them an enhanced platform from which they can better serve individuals in their focus mission.

A diverse group of Chicago’s leading designers will provide chairs for the silent auction, including:
