In its second year of sitting for good, the Chicago Home and Garden's home-grown Chairs for Charity event will take place at Chicago Art Source on Wednesday, November 2. The event consists of fifteen big time chicago-based designers like Matthew Lew and Gary Lee and Cody Hudson taking vintage chairs and re-making them for good. The good being once they're auctioned off the proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Tickets are $35 and can only be bought online. [Racked Wire]
