Great junior loungers!

Last weekend I visited Interiors United, an exhibition at the Home Trade Center Nieuwegein. I went to view new Autumn and Winter collections of furniture, fabrics and accessories and to get inspired for my blog and shop. I ended up spending a great amount of time at the exhibition of the junior loungers.

The loungers are designed for children in a unique design contest organized by the Association of the Dutch Furniture Industry CBM. The contest was launched as a result of a question by Stephanie, whose sister suffers from a Mitochondrial disease. She wished a nice and comfortable lounge chair for her sister to rest in, as she spends her time in a wheelchair or a bed. 
As a result 28 designers designed 28 loungers, which will be sold by auction. The proceeds will benefit Energy4All, an organization that supports research aiming at a cure for Mitochondrial diseases. 

So please take a look, make an offer and help these children gain more energy!
