Dwell with Dignity announces the exciting details of its popular annual fundraiser, Thrift Studio, a pop-up shop of luxury home furnishings and original artwork by local artists. The home décor items and artwork, impeccably displayed in vignettes created by nine prestigious interior designers, will be available to purchase at dramatic discounts with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting Dwell with Dignity’s mission to transform lives through design for those struggling with homelessness and poverty. This year, Shay Geyer of IBB Design (in photo) serves as the 2020 Thrift Studio Honorary Chair, and ALG Collective’s four artists – Anna Curnes, Melissa Ellis, Annie Griffeth, and Christi Meril – serve as art co-chairs.
