The importance of building a strong design culture as consumers and employees demand to be…
March 2017 – Camron worked with Rejuvenation, a Portland-based design retailer and manufacturer, to help launch a special three day pop up of Hudson Valley Design fair Field + Supply in their newly opened New York City flagship store.
The vision behind the event was to create an upscale fair atmosphere, a play on the flea market events held at the other 7 Rejuvenation locations around the country, while staying true to both companies’ heritage. Recently celebrating its 40-year anniversary, this event was a reflection of the history and commitment Rejuvenation has to preserving American design and locally sourced goods. For this New York City pop up, Rejuvenation and Field + Supply worked together to carefully curate twelve makers. From handmade textiles and beauty products to ceramics and charcuterie, all of which populated the 5,500 square foot retail space, the event allowed vendors to bring their work to a wider audience. Some of the makers included were Eric Bonnin’s handmade ceramics, grooming and beauty products made with locally grown ingredients by Hudson Made, and Hudson Vally charcuterie company Raven & Boar.
To kick-off the weekend, Camron organized an intimate cocktail party for the interior design community, media and VIPs. The party featured a local New York-based cotton candy company, Fluff+Fluff, Portland-based brewery, Drinking Horse, and popcorn company, Pinkleton’s. More than 100 guests enjoyed these treats with additional catering by Poppy’s. The Good Morning Nags, a blue-grass band from New York City, provided the evening’s entertainment.
