From dreamy children’s spaces to a retro game room and a ladies’ lounge, 10 talented Charlotte designers brought plenty of creativity and passion to last month’s annual Furnished fundraiser for Furnish For Good. The local nonprofit provides gently used and new furnishings, kitchen and bath essentials, and other household items to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness and poverty.
Over three months, the designers volunteered their time, taking turns creating vignettes at FFG’s South End location. The vignettes were photographed by Dustin and Susie Peck, then the public was invited to vote on their favorite designs in exchange for a small donation. Featured items — furniture, accent items and artwork donated by the designers — were displayed at Slate Interiors, which hosted the kickoff party attended by more than 175 people, then sold in an online auction. The event raised $207,000 to help support operations and future initiatives for Furnish For Good, which has served more than 1,500 people since it was founded in 2019.
