You might be familiar with our Little Black Dresser, so here’s the newest version designed for a great cause: The Little Pink Dresser.
Judson is always looking for a great cause to be a part of. This year he decided to do a Little Pink Dresser as a donation piece for the Luxe Home Interiors Chair-Ity event with proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation-BC/Yukon Region.
The Dresser was showcased at the 2012 IDS West Show in Vancouver before making the trip to Victoria for this special event.
