Design on a Dime is now heading to Brooklyn, running October 6 to 9 in Industry City. Twenty emerging and established interior designers from the area will transform 20 rooms, which will be shoppable for furniture, art, and home decor at discounts of up to 80 percent. Proceeds from Design on a Dime Brooklyn Outpost will benefit Housing Works programs.
Participating designers Akhira N. Ismail, Ellen Hamilton and Jae Joo
