A Bench Auction by Kelly La Plante and Spruce Upholstery | DIFFA Austin


Hola everyone! How was your fourth-of-July-sweltering-hot-long-weekend? Mine was low-key {meaning it was spent working} which is what I needed after a week and a half long stint in Vegas where my non-gambling and non-drinking self was spent just supporting my husband exercising his passion for poker.

Also, behind-the-scenes, I’m so lucky to be in the committee that is bringing DIFFA {Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids} to Austin — where 20 designers will showcase picnic table set ups in an Urban Picnic by Design on September 11 {more details to come}. The event is spearheaded by the talented Kelly La Plante. La Plante partnered with the upholstery mavens at Spruce to create this one-of-a-kind, retro-groovy Bench with Alexander McQueen inspired fabric and hairpin legs from Treehouse Austin. I mean, what’s not to love about this piece? It is aptly named the Frank Bench, named after one of Kelly’s dear friends who after battling AIDS for 34 years, passed away this year.


Bid for the bench here! The auction expires at midnight, July 8. That’s tomorrow! Go, go, go! It’s an amazing custom piece made by the who’s who of the design world here in Austin and all proceeds goes to the Aids Services of Austin.

Don’t forget to bid here everyone!
