DIFFA....creative spirit for a cause

I have been on a whirlwind, from our Warehouse sale last weekend to setting up our booth at the Architectural Digest Show in New York. Next, we will be featuring our vignette booth at Housing Works for their famous yearly Design on a Dime, but tonight, a little relaxation for the hot party ticket at DIFFA Dining by Design.

Creative challenges, efforts, visions were amazing. each table was  enchanting, surprising, clever . I am soon to be off to my booth at the Show, and will highlight my favorite Vignettes.

If you are planning to attend the show, come visit booth 169 in the MADE section.

Perhaps, one of these vignettes for your next dinner party?

Designed by New York School of Interior Design, Mentor: Marc Blackwell

New York University Mentors: David Rockwell and Barry Richards. Incredibly clever, all constructed with wire coat hangers

Many Hands by Gensler and Herman Miller. The wall is covered with Kiss chocolates

My very favorite from FIT. Mentor: Jes Gordon

Benjamin Moore by David Stark. You feel as if you were inside a Jackson Pollock painting..

  1. What beautiful dining ' rooms ' Francine, each and every one of them. I would be quite happy to sit down at any of those tables with family and friends and have a great time !
    Hope all goes well at the Show for you.
    ...... oh, and many thanks for your lovely comment yesterday. It's always so lovely to see a comment from you. XXXX

  2. As the daughter of a house painter, my favorite Saturday outings were to the Benjamin Moore store in our town to pick up the needed paint for the coming work week. I loved the squirts of color and the miles of buckets in their warehouse and the noise of the mixing machine. . .oh yes, and the smell; one I still love today. You know which photo in this series was my favorite!
