Two weeks ago we had our 2nd annual charity auction and it was a huge success. Over $8,000 was raised for Project Color Corps with help from the design community and our partners. We will also have the opportunity to help paint a school with the money that was raised. Let us know if you would like to participate by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Back in May, we scoured Craigslist, neighborhood streets, vintage stores, Goodwill, and the Salvation Army for interesting chairs with good bones that needed a little extra love. We gave the chairs to randomly selected architecture and design firms for them to re-design. With a little blood, sweat, tears, and help from Kay Chesterfield’s pro reupholstering skills, they were transformed into desirable pieces of art and truly beautiful chairs. Check out all of the before and after photos on our Pinterest, and more coverage of the event can be found here.
We owe a huge thank you to EQ3 San Francisco for allowing us to use their beautiful space and their equally amazing hospitality! We absolutely love our design community and we could not have done any of this without you!
