HeartFelt Event

In early February, some of the best San Francisco Bay Area designers put together artworks for the charitable silent auction, HeartFelt. Hosted at Gensler, the event name draws on the month’s theme of love and felt remnant material donated by FilzFelt. All auctioned items benefit the non-profit organization Philanthropy by Design.

 

Philanthropy by Design

Philanthropy by Design (PBD) is a volunteer-run organization of design professionals geared towards improving the interiors of community service organizations. Going on thirty-two years creating inspiring interiors, the group focuses on designing with recycled furnishings.

This team re-creates space utilizing skills in project management and interior design including; space planning, art, product sourcing, and color consultation. PBD has helped over 700 community service agencies in the Bay Area. PBD serves thousands of Bay Area residents, “bringing them hope, inspiration, and comfort.”

One project recently completed by the PBD team is the Aquatic Park Senior Center.

Upon hearing of the event from our Sales Representative in San Francisco, we put together a themed trivet set for the auction. Made from 100% wool felt from FilzFelt, these trivets are a sneak peek into our upcoming collection for the home scheduled to release later this year.
