Earlier this month, transFORM celebrated the season in style by attending two major Interior Design events. It was an evening of networking and excellent conversation as well as, tasty drinks and refreshments. We really enjoyed seeing familiar faces as well as being introduced to new members of the community.
The first festivity was a joint Holiday Gala with the IDS New York City Chapter, NKBA Manhattan and IFDA New York. The celebration was hosted by Thermador in the A & D Building.

Throughout the night, guests mingled while enjoying holiday tunes and festive activities like cookie decorating.
Members of IDS, NKBA and IFDA discussed their big plans for not only the design industry but the community as a whole. This was evident through their ‘rock Can roll’ food drive, which took place during the event. It was wonderful to see how many people embraced the gift-giving season by donating to this nonprofit hunger relief organization.
Shortly after, we made our way over to Newel Antiques in the Interior Design building, where ASID NY Metro was hosting their 2015 Holiday party.

Thank you to both groups for including us in your holiday celebrations.
We had an awesome time and look forward to seeing you at future events in the New York Design Community.
