On February 6, Partners Trust’s Openhouse on Ocean Park Blvd. in Santa Monica welcomed its third impressive retail installation: Ariel Fox Design. Ariel Johnson of Ariel Fox Design hit the ground running on February 15, hosting a launch “Love Party” to bring Partners Trust Associates, friends, and neighbors together to celebrate the beautifully-curated collection of artisan furniture and custom designs.
Partners Trust’s community outpost and experience-based retail concept, Openhouse, has bestowed the agency with a rewarding sense of community since its onset in August of 2016. Featuring an inviting, open floor plan, Openhouse regularly showcases a collection of home decor and lifestyle vignettes from designers, boutiques, furniture makers, and artists from the local community and throughout Los Angeles.
Showcasing the best of L.A.’s high-end furniture making and trade showrooms, the Ariel Fox Design launch party honored love: both for craft and the community. Guests were able to indulge in mixology cocktails, small bites, and tarot card readings for their 2017 love forecast, all while amidst L.A. artisans’ greatest pieces.
There was no better way to launch the installation than on the basis of love. Openhouse is committed to uniting the Partners Trust community, the surrounding neighborhood, and both friends and family.
The space is quite literally “open”: an invitation to connect with the astounding works of local artists, and, of course, one another.
