I know I'm a little late to the game in this announcement, since we're already 1/3 into the month, but October is officially National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In case you haven't noticed the color pink is all over the place! Every where I turn I'm seeing individuals, local business, large corporations and more sporting pink in order to increase awareness and provide education on the disease and raise funds for research, prevention and a cure.
Now, for the first time ever, Hans Wegner’s Wishbone Chair is available in pink.
