Dining By Design - Architectural Digest Show - Part 3

My third installment of the DIFFA Dining by Design coverage ends today with these extra ordinary tables designed by some of the market leaders in creative art expression.

I was so taken by every detail of this first World of Color created by David Stark who truly is one of the most artistically free individuals, and this room where the Benjamin Moore color palette has erupted into a fantastical tea party just left me in complete awe.

Golds, bronzes, and metallics played a big part of the colors and materials shared by the next few designers as they brought luscious layers to their table designs.

Jonathan Adler for Kravet was another fine example of sheer ingenuity in not only considering the product that he had to display (textiles, wall coverings, furniture, accessories..etc) but also creating the sense of voyeurism as we all tried to get closer to the silhouettes in order to get a closer glimpse at all the details that lay within.

Each time would poke my head in, I would look up and see another friendly face on the either side smiling at me.  

Ralph did not disappoint in creating a very *Lauren-esque* retreat - I would have happily stayed a while and enjoyed a glass of wine...

and lastly the simplicity of the table by Marc Cunningham below, with the beautiful play of the lighting creating shadows and areas of light as well as the wooden screen like structure surrounding the table, was a fine example of clean elegance.

I hope you have enjoyed the last 3 days of Dining By Design coverage.

Also, as not to forget the importance of the event is also to raise awareness in the Fight Against AIDS -
