DIFFA's Dining by Design 2011

Friday, March 25, 2011

Instead of our regular Food Porn Friday programming, I thought I'd leave you coverage from my FAVE annual Dining by Design event sponsored by DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) and coinciding with the Architectural Digest Home Design Show last week in New York. 

You might remember my fave table installations seen HERE from last year's shindig and every year it just keeps getting more and more inspired. I'm especially loving David Stark's and Coffinier KU's whimsical use of trompe-l'oeil techniques with the painted moldings and wall treatments...fresh, fun, young, and vibrant- right up my alley and PERFECT for spring!

Hope you all enjoy a fantastic weekend- Happy FRIDAY!!!
