SXSW Day 2: Foundation Capital

We’re still recovering from the madness of SXSW, so forgive us for the late post. It’s been go-go-go over here for the past few weeks, but we wanted to share the second day of events we orchestrated for Foundation Capital.

In contrast to the first day that was meant to be a mashup of bright colors and fun textures, day two focused on the juxtaposition of modern with antique. We utilized our mid-century modern pieces amongst vignettes featuring our traditional  vintage pieces to create an entirely different and unique feel. The color palette was black, white, red, and navy.

As opposed to the more obvious choice of taking this into an Americana theme, we simply wanted to utilize these colors in unique ways that were unexpected. We hope you’ll gain some inspiration for your upcoming events and stay from the norm, too.
