Karen Dzendolet, principal and owner of KDZ Designs in Pelham, and John Geraghty, founder of Grain of Thought Furniture Design and Woodworks in Southampton, made the pieces for the “Take a Seat” design exhibition.
The exhibition and auction is put on annually by the New England Chapter of the International Furnishings and Design Association and encourages designers, crafstpeople and builders to make what are known as “upcycled, one-of-a-kind chairs”
Geraghty used wood to build what he calls the “Grain of Thought” dining chair, while Dzendolet created the “Suave Swivel” that mimics a vintage 1960s swivel-base chair with updated fabrics.
The gala and auction will be held at Royale Nightclub, 279 Tremont St., Boston, Thursday, June 1st from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.
