Designed by Glenn Midnet, president of Interiors by Design West, in honor of his mother Alyce who died of breast cancer, the pink ribbon “Alyce” chair will be showcased at the premier of a new world-class exhibition, “Diana: Legacy of a Princess,” opening June 16 at the Queen Mary Ship in Long Beach, CA. The exhibition, co-hosted by the ship and the breast cancer awareness organization Pink Ribbons Crusade, features a priceless collection of evening gowns, dresses, personal accessories, photographs, heirlooms and other cherished memorabilia associated with Princess Diana and the Royal Family. A portion of the proceeds generated by this exhibit will benefit Pink Ribbons Crusade and other nonprofit organizations dedicated to the fight against breast cancer and working specifically in the areas of awareness and prevention.
“It is an honor to have the Alyce chair as part of the Princess Diana exhibition in support of breast cancer awareness,” says Midnet. “I’m proud that my work can help benefit the fight against breast cancer and be recognized by others who share this mission.”
Glenn Midnet, Interior Design Society professional, president and CEO of Interiors by Design West designed the Alyce chair as the first piece in the collection for Furniture for the Cure, in honor of his mother. Each piece in the collection incorporates the awareness ribbon design, plus walnut wood for strength, silver leaf or brushed nickel for quiet beauty and stone to represent individuality. A portion of the proceeds from every piece sold will help benefit cancer research. To learn more about Furniture for the Cure, log onto www.furnitureforthecure.org.
