This Dining By Design table was sponsored by SICIS The Art Factory, the mosaic masters we see gracing the pages of interior design mags on a regular basis. The space was designed by Massimiliano Raggi. The entire room, down to the guests, was designed using mosaic tiles, with some exceptions being on the tabletop, of course. Amazing. Whether you love or hate mosiacs, you have to at least appreciate the sheer skill and patience involved in a project of this scope – brilliant!
Sponsored by the New York Design Center (NYDC is also known as 200 Lexington), owned by James Druchman, this Dining By Design room dazzled. (200 Lex is the other one-stop-shop for the trade only building in NYC, the other being the D&D building.) This space was designed by Rick Shaver and Lee Melahn of Shaver/Melahn, a well-known design studio in NY. Lighting provided by Zia Priven. Rich Shaver is an architect and Lee Melahn an Interior Designer, and they design a line of furniture as well. A monochromatic take on Marie Antionette, their space was exquisite.
This space was sponsored by Elle D?cor and designed by Margaret Russell, shown below at DIFFA’s Dining By Design. Need I say more? Done in a festive Moroccan style with an outdoors-y feel, the space was very large with at 3 or 4 seating areas, all in the same style. Rich, elegant colors, lots of pattern, bench style seating. And of course, there’s Ms. Russell looking more radiant than ever.
Sponsored by Kravet, designed by Barclay Butera with Tozai Home/Two?s Company, here’s there space at Dining By Design. So well designed, warm, gorgeous, don’t you think? I love all the wood elements in this space, from the ceilings to the walls, and of course, the furnishings. Stunning.
This space was sponsored by the Kirk Brummel Collection, Brunschwig + Fils‘ American contemporary fabrics line. The room itself was designed by one of today’s hottest designers, Miles Redd. For those that know his work, you’ll see this space as so typical Miles. Very vibrant and definitely unique, don’t you think? Make sure you look at his online portfolio too, it’s stunning. This was definitely a colorful Dining By Design space!
This is “India” designed by NY Interior Designer, Elaine Griffin at DIFFA’s Dining By Design. The custom handblown chandelier is amazing, from Suzan Etkin (visit their website, a must-see). Additional credits to ABC Carpet & Home, Pearl River Trading Co., and Dexter Phillip. Wow, that chandelier. Just can’t take my eyes off of it…
