We had a great time this week and were so inspired by people's enthusiasm about design! With this and the Object opening a week earlier, we're feeling some serious momentum for Design in the Northwest. So exciting!
Here's a little summary of the weekend:
It all started Friday with a preview party at Sole Repair:
Look at all these beautiful people!
Saturday, we braved the wintery elements opening the big garage door at Caffe Vita's Bean Room for the Blanc pop up. Using bags of coffee beans, discarded pallettes and crates Jean led the crew of willing volunteers in merchandising a beautiful display of Blanc and non-Blanc design items.
The crowd was consistent and diverse from JOIN followers to coffee-sipping walk-ins. By the successful end of the first day, we knew there was no other option than to extend the hours three more hours on Saturday and open up again on Sunday!
By the end of the weekend it was resounding clear: Seattle is ready to embrace design more than ever! We say this is the turning point!! High fives all around!
