Sponsored by the Minwax(R) Company to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
The auction will also showcase the signature chairs of celebrity chef Rocco
DiSpirito, Regis & Joy Philbin, NY Giants’ Michael Strahan, Billy Joel and new
bride Kate Lee, former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, do-it-yourself guru
Norm Abram and one chair with the signatures of 25 NY Yankees.
The designers including fashion diva Norma Kamali, and noted interior
designers Jamie Drake, and Katherine Stephens plus architects Bromley/Caldari
donated their time and expertise to make the project a success, and from the
look of the chairs, many of which were finished to their specifications in the
Minwax Design Workshop, they expressed their personalities with color and
flair. From Norma Kamali’s bold yellow lemongrass rocker to Oscar de la
Renta’s exotic jade Chinese Chippendale, to the New York Yankees’ pinstriped
“schoolhouse” chair, each makes a design statement that’s uniquely personal.
On November 18, the chairs will be offered at a silent auction during the
Kips Bay Holiday Wonders Party in the Brunschwig & Fils showroom at 979 Third
Ave., with all proceeds going to the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.

    i just wanted to write and get this off my mind, i enjoy jlo’s music very much indeed, she is a beautiful lady with very great talents, but i am very upsett to know that her new line of fashion has way to much furs in it. I am a huge animal lover and was kinda hurt to know that she would use real fur. I guess jlos not a big animal lover , so when wearing your fur jackets and big furry hats, how great you may feel wearing that stuff, but just think how those poor animals felt being killed for them.
