Inside T&C Atelier: A Gathering About the Chic Qualities of a Fabulous Home

It was an afternoon filled with sumptuous food, laughter, fine company, and the finest things.

Fifty of our closest friends joined us for an afternoon at the Proscenium at Rockwell showroom for our second T&C Atelier earlier this week. Before the event, guests were treated to a brunch at The Glasshouse by Harlan + Holden with wine from Cloudy Bay.

The Atelier offered guests the opportunity to check out the Proscenium Residences showroom and browse through a curated showcase of fine furniture and home accessories from Kassa by Karen Santos, Garrison Rousseau, Elements Fine Furnishing Fabrics, and Signum Contemporary Objects. Guests are welcome to visit the showroom with these vignettes at Power Plant Mall till December 20.

During the event, guests enjoyed a spread of creative, delectable desserts by pastry chef Miko Aspiras and special coffee selections from Nespresso. It was an afternoon filled with sumptuous food, laughter, fine company, and the finest things. See all the photos from the day below.
