DANBURY, Conn.-Ethan Allen Interiors has paired up with interior designer, blogger and TV personality Nicole Gibbons for the 10th anniversary edition of Housing Works' Design on a Dime, April 24-26 in New York.

True to her fashion roots, the Gibbons' design is a "Chic in Pink" living room fit for a fashionista which will feature $25,000 of furniture, lighting and accessories donated by Ethan Allen on a backdrop of bright pink Valspar Reserve paint.

"We are fans of Nicole's fashion-forward point of view on style for the home," said Farooq Kathwari, chairman and CEO of Ethan Allen. "An outlook that mirrors ours perfectly. We were truly inspired by her stylish plans and so pleased to partner with her on what promises to be a beautiful vignette for Design on a Dime."

Held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City's Chelsea district, the three-day Design on a Dime event features more than 50 of the world's top interior designers, who create unforgettable room vignettes with new merchandise, which is donated and then sold for 50 to 70 percent off retail pricing, with all proceeds benefitting "Get A Room" for homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Since 2005, Design on a Dime has raised more than $7 million in support of Housing Works.
