Dining By design 2016



Spring ushers in the fun fundraiser Dining by Design once again, the beautiful tabletop event that supports DIFFA.  Changes over the past few years have seen a move to Pier 92 from its former home adjacent to the AD Show and more sponsors working with designers, as opposed to the other way around.

 Gentler, Herman Miller and 3Form have teamed up before, and lighting is always used evocatively

Baccarat and Modern Luxury Manhattan Magazine set a stunning table with one of the best views in the building.  The butterflies fluttering above and finding their way onto the table with light dancing off  the gorgeous cut crystal ~ pure Baccarat

SA Baxter Architectural Hardware + INGRAO, a modern mix

Sasha Bikoff with Luxe Interiors + Design call to mind a Garden of Eden featuring always stunning  De Gourney wallpaper and a drop dead Murano chandelier with furniture by Christian Liagire.

Darrin Varden with The New York Times present What's Black and White and Read all over, a nod to the paper in this residential like space.  Lladro's porcelain lighting is striking yet delicate; the horses galloping across the table, strong yet agile.  Diagonal Tree, a painting by Clare Sherman, reflects the destruction of life, once strong now ravaged and dying.  Artistic Frame custom made the sculptural strié chairs

I loved the porcelain sconces.  They are equal parts artistic and delicate.

Speaking of a fête,  The New York Design Center turns 90!  Antonino Buzzetta is staging an impressive celebration.  This is a street party I want to attend.
