Noted in both the 2015 Kravet summer newsletter and in O Magazine from September 2014, I applaud Margaret Barnett, an Atlanta based interior designer who founded her own non-profit organization, the What a Life Foundation. Barnett, owner and principal designer at the high-end design firm Barnett & Co. collects slightly-used furniture and appliance donations from her clients and other donors who are redecorating, updating or discarding items. The items are then coordinated and donated to furnish homes for veterans and their families. A great idea and an inspiration to other designers! I hope Ms. Barnett’s idea is going strong.
