Charity is serious stuff, but Interior Design and Harter ramped up the revelry while cosponsoring the Heart's Desire silent auction and cocktail party. The office-seating specialist also played host to the participating designers and their devotees at its New York showroom, a 7,500-square-foot space, designed by the Moderns, on the 11th floor of the A&D Building. While the glasses clinked, a cache of cash was raised for two worthy organizations. Who says you can't do good and have a good time?
