DUAL NATURES INTERIOR DESIGN PRESENTS STYLE INTERSECTION: WHERE STREET MEETS HOME AS PART OF DESIGNPHILADELPHIA FESTIVAL
5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, October 15, 2014
Immersive experience and cocktail reception explores fashion, street art, and interior design at Front & Palmer event space – one of America’s top 100 wedding venues
September 8, 2014 – As part of the 10th annual DesignPhiladelphia Festival, Dual Natures Interior Design is pleased to present Style Intersection: Where Street Meets Home from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, October 15, 2014. This immersive design experience and cocktail reception explores the intersection of public and private style—from the clothes we wear, to the art we create, to the spaces we call home. Catered by Feast Your Eyes, the event will feature light refreshments and a cash bar.
Dual Natures co-owners, sisters Saige and Mia Robb, will transform the dramatic Front & Palmer industrial event space into a comfortable living environment, with interior design sets and handmade furnishings inspired by large-scale street style photographs. Front & Palmer is a former barrel factory in Philadelphia’s South Kensington Art District, remade into a modern event site with 35-foot ceilings, art chandeliers, and wood floors. Bride’s Magazine named Front & Palmer one of the Top 100 Wedding Venues in America. Style Intersection: Where Street Meets Home highlights the dualities of exterior/interior life in Philadelphia—juxtaposing gritty with cozy, and revealing how style comes from the outside in.
Guests can travel at their own pace through various living spaces designed by Dual Natures: a living room, dining room, dressing room, and various vignettes throughout the space. Each distinctive showroom is accompanied by an oversized version of the edgy street style photograph that inspired it. The décor will include Saige and Mia Robb’s own handcrafted, eco-conscious furnishings, as well as items sourced from upscale Philadelphia retailers. Both photographs and furniture will be available for purchase.
Further enhancing the immersive, self-guided experience will be a living statue performance— suggesting how our public lives expressed through art are reflected in our personal homes and style choices.
This event is free and open to the public, to RSVP please visit www.dualnatures.com.
