Aaron R. Thomas and Stefanie Phan hosted a month-long pop up art gallery, ARTHOUSE, in their private home and studio. The brainchild of the creative pair, ARTHOUSE, celebrates fine art, fashion and design in their home, design studio, workshop and gallery—featuring one-of-a-kind sculptures, paintings and functional fine art furniture by Aaron R. Thomas and offering a sneak peek at Stefanie Phan Fine Jewelry's debut collection. New works and designs were showcased each week to an intimate group of friends, family, art collectors, designers, fashion buyers, editors and artists.
For the launch guests enjoyed the couple's favorite charcuterie, cheeses and wines by Old Vine Cafe and luxe home fragrance and beauty products by Jo Malone and Molton Brown. As the sun set, guests were encouraged to gather around the outdoor fire pit in the garden and enjoy the gourmet s'mores bar with handmade marshmallows by Lulu Bananas.
The pop up art/fashion/design event was incubated over Skype when Stefanie was in Sydney, Australia and Aaron was in California. They shared a love of being inspired by their environment and creating a space that encourages new ideas in cities all over the world. Eager to discover new inspiration by their travels, the couple are getting ready to take the pop up event on the road.
