My rug and 15 others designed by Chicago interior designers will be on display at Oscar Isberian this fall and then raffled during Carpets for Cause on October 23.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Designs for Dignity, which combines pro bono design and construction talent and in-kind donations to breathe new life into nonprofit spaces.
