COUPAR'S SEPTEMBER EDIT

The change of seasons has arrived and COUPAR is ready to fall in love with autumn all over again. We are pulling out our favorite knit throws, layering ourselves and our interiors with warm tones and textures, and for those of us that are so inclined, we now have an excuse to bring on the controversial pumpkin spice. (Just don't tell Martha). Here is a recap of what our clients have been up to during the long, but not so lazy, days of summer. From winning awards and beginning new partnerships to developing new skill sets, our COUPAR clients have been busy since we sent our last update. Read on to discover some of the many ways COUPAR engages with our clients and the design community at large as well as the scoop on upcoming fall events.

COUPAR BLOG | HAVE YOU PLAYED WITH FIRE?

The hiss of the fire burned in our ears as a man dressed all in black stood before us, clutching a hammer by its wooden handle. The lot of us—marketing professionals, interior designers, curious patrons, and more—watched wide-eyed as he gestured toward the swirling metal creations that hung above our heads.

#INTHESKY | ON EXHIBIT AT ARTHAUS

San Francisco gallerist and curator James Bacchi is pleased to introduce #inthesky, his first portfolio of 16 mobile photographs. 

Shot spontaneously, these images portray the volatile relationship between the sky and the urban landscape. Void of color, these photographs contrast fleeting moments of beauty, strength and vulnerability, all of which takes place #inthesky.

10% of all sales from #inthesky (California) will benefit the UCSF Alliance Health Project.
