October ushers in Breast Cancer Awareness Month and last night I had a chance to celebrate one of my fave of the pink product with the Pink Wishbone Project at cocktail party inside Barney’s New York. For one year only, Hans Wegner’s famed Wishbone chair will be available to purchase in pink at Suite New York (a NYC furniture showroom) for the next year with 20% of the profits going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
To kick-off the launch, The Pink Wishbone Project got 20 of the world’s leading women interior designers to create one-of-a kind cushions for the chair. Participating designer’s include: Kelly Behun, Sheila Bridges, Alexandra Champalimaud, Neisha Crosland, Lulu deKwiatkowski, 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.
I spotted Today show host Hoda Kotb hanging out with Barney’s Simon Doonan and BCRF founder Evelyn Lauder was in attendance as well.
Here are a few of my fave chairs:
