Marriage of Craft and Design

Last month, the San Francisco showroom, in conjunction with the American Craft Council (ACC) hosted an extremely successful customer event. We worked months planning this event. As a member of the San Francisco Brand Team, we are responsible for hosting several events throughout the year.

The ACC approached our Central Brand partners with the idea of the event to coincide with the big ACC show held at Ft. Mason in San Francisco annually. The idea was to have a preview party at our showroom, featuring the work of several ACC members also exhibiting at the show and invite Vern Yip, HGTV star to discuss how hand-crafted works can really enhance one’s living spaces.

The initial part of the event was exclusive to the press and ACC supporters. These folks were treated to an intimate conversation with Vern and Steve Volpe, a well-known San Francisco based Designer. These guests also enjoyed Balvenie scotch and catered treats.

The event then expanded to the entire showroom. Over 300 guests enjoyed a DJ, catering, beverages a slide show featuring Vern and his philosophy regarding using hand-crafted work in your home and meeting with ACC artists and experiencing their work. The ACC artists were a delight and their work really enhanced our room settings. All guests were also given passes to attend the ACC event the following weekend at Fort Mason.
