Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego

Tables for Tots Charity Auction, August 2014

 The Tow-ta-ble

The Tow-ta-ble

The Ronald McDonald House is a place where the family of children being treated at Rady Children's Hospital can stay at low or no cost. 


Each year, 20 design firms enter the Tables for Tots challenge to build something out of a child-size table and chairs. The entries are auctioned off to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.


This is our first year participating as Entente Design and we could not be more excited!


Our design was inspired by the yellow submarine Charlotte's father built for her when she was a child.


Sandy worked for months designing and fabricating while Carrie and Charlotte painted, sewed and scoured local shops looking for just the right finishing touches.


In the end, the hope is that our creation brings joy to one lucky family and hope to many more...


International Interior Design Association

Art Show, March 2014

IIDA panel_cropped

“This world is but a canvas to our imagination”  Henry David Thoreau


Our piece was a collaborative effort between Entente Design and photographer, Anna Rowland.


Thru the use of magnetic character components the viewer is able to “play” with and tailor the image from a serene old world image to a “photograph” of loved ones in the scene to a whimsical crowd including Superman and the Pope.


We combined our talents of photography, sketching and wood/metal fabrication to create “Reflection”:  a scene from Venice Italy. 


The money raised from the sale of the artwork went to support the local chapter of the IIDA and assisted with their efforts to fund children’s charities in southern California.
