Brief: The V&A asked us to provide furniture and pop up bars for the John Madieski Garden with a French Riviera theme.

With a tip of the cap to the current sell-out ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ exhibition, Velvet Living helped transform the space with pop-up bars, food stations and summery lounge areas to whisk guests away - in spirit! - to the south of France for a stolen vacation. Those in attendance were able to wander through Provencal markets, sip beach-side drinks and were brought a touch of Dior opulence with guests welcomed to enjoy champagne at Velvet Living and Urban Caprice’s centre-piece gold bar which was draped and cascading with beautiful floral arrangements from Pinstripe & Peonies!
