The Pink Wishbone Project, a Charity Event

Chairs become Art, to benefit Breast Cancer Research. Thanks to Suite New York, a Manhattan furniture showroom, Hans Wegner’s famous Wishbone Chair, made in Denmark by Carl Hansen and Son, will be available in pink for the next year, with 20 percent of its sales going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The project will kick-off with a cocktail party this evening October 7th at Barneys NY that BCRF founder Evelyn Lauder is set to attend. The twenty chairs will be on display and will later be auctioned with 100 percent of the proceeds to benefit BCRF. Twenty of the world's leading women interior designers have each created one-of-a-kind cushions for the chair.
Kelly Behun, Sheila Bridges, Alexandra Champalimaud, Neisha Crosland, Lulu de Kwiatkowski, Tori Golub, Alexa Hampton, Allegra Hicks, Julie Hillman, Annie Kelly, Celerie Kemble, Kit Kemp, Laura Kirar, Amy Lau, Katie Lydon, Emma Jane Pilkington, Sara Rotman, Ruthie Sommers, Kelly Wearstler, and Bunny Williams have donated extraordinary cushions that are for the most part, elegant and charming.
