FURNITURE FOR A CAUSE: Realize you had all winter to buy a sofa for the house in the Hamptons and still you managed to forget? Well, on Thursday you can pick one up, meet Maggie Gyllenhaal, get design advice from Real Simple's Kristin van Ogtrop and help homeless people with AIDS at the annual Housing Works "Design on a Dime Benefit 2008," which this year features discounted furniture from Thom Filicia, Charlotte Moss, Jamie Drake, Sharon Simonaire and Sills Huniford, whose founder James Huniford is cohosting. Held at the Metropolitan Pavilion on West 18th Street, there'll also be a silent auction of photography by Herb Ritts, Pamela Hanson and Tierney Gearon.

SCOTTO SPIRIT: "When you think about Rosanna, you smile. She's the girlfriend everyone should have in their lives," said TV producer Amy Rosenblum, who presented the Spirit of Life award to Fox 5 News anchor Rosanna Scotto last Thursday at the City of Hope Spirit of Life award luncheon at the Waldorf Astoria. Rosenblum described Scotto as a terrific "family girl" who can often be found schmoozing with diners at her family's restaurant, Fresco by Scotto on East 52nd Street. The luncheon, sponsored by the East End Chapter/Jeanne Kaye League also honored realtor I. Dolly Lenz, vice chairman of Prudential Douglas Elliman, and featured a runway presentation of Pamela Dennis' made-to-measure eveningwear. The event raised over $400,000, about $55,000 more than last year.

BABY MAMA: Bergdorf Goodman will have to wait. Saks and Neiman's will too. Nancy Gonzalez's resort collection will be ready a bit late this year. The reason for the delay? The designer is about to become a grandmother. The Cali, Colombia-based designer's daughter, Cristina Barberi Gonzalez, is expecting her first child in June, and Gonzalez has been busy jetting between her daughter's home in Los Angeles and hers in Cali in preparations for the baby. "Family comes before resort," mused the accessories brand's president, Santiago Barberi Gonzalez. "We are a family owned brand. They will have to wait." The collection will be ready to peruse on June 16.

WEB DESIGNER: Google users can now double-click in style — against a background of Dolce & Gabbana's signature leopard pattern or swatches of Tory Burch's trademark geometric prints. These fashion-forward wallpaper settings — available on iGoogle (a service that allows users to personalize their Google home pages) — are two of the almost 70 celebrity-designed options launched by the search engine. Many of fashion's own joined Jeff Koons and Lance Armstrong, including Diane von Furstenberg, who contributed a floral print from her spring 2007 collection, and Oscar de la Renta, who offered an ikat from his fall 2005 show.
