DIFFA-Dining by Design - Part 1 at the Architectural Digest Show

My visit to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show last year was very successful for me and my design practice as I found some really fantastic artists that ended up collaborating with me on a few design installations..

One of the main highlights for me every year is always the DIFFA-Dining by Design tables exhibition... as is of course, my breakfast with Modenus and the lovely team of BlogTour NYC with a few #MarysandMimosas to start us off right!

In it's 16th year, this annual celebration of art, fashion and design draws on the collaborative powers of tabletop and interior/architectural minds in a way that is always very inspiring and highly creative, and this year was certainly no exception. All of that AND all for a special cause.. now that is simply Magic.

"DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS is one of the country's largest supporters of direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS & preventive education for those at risk." 

Some of the first look at the tables and their designers.. make sure to check out their links too and support everyone that helps make this possible every year..
I'm just going to let the tables speak for themselves..
