In Pictures: 23rd Annual Rooms with a View held

FAIRFIELD — Affording the opportunity for people to take a literal stroll through a design catalog, the 23rd annual Rooms with a View event took place this weekend at Southport Congregational Church.

About 3,000 people were expected throughout the weekend, which included a gala celebration Friday night.

“It’s a celebration of makers,” said Rosine Chlala, co-chair of the event, “people who really create and bring their passion to the community.

Dozens of designers had their work featured in six-by-eight-foot display areas. There were also a range of artists and vendors selling handmade and vintage items.

Proceeds from the event went to support some of the church’s charity missions.
