Additional credits go to: artist Diana Bryan (for the amazing cut out work), Portland Color for the graphics and fabrication, Zone Fabricators, Inc. on the centerpiece, Michael C. Fina for all glassware and flatware, and Annieglass for the dinnerware.

Dining By Design: Candy Productions

February 26, 2007

This one was sponsored and designed by Candy Productions at Dining By Design. The photo says it all, sheer silliness and drag queens galore. Definitely the most fun space, but was it well designed? I guess when drag queens dance on tables, that’s points enough, right? It’s good to see design in a less serious format sometimes though. Plus, I just love this image. It’s one to enlarge and frame for sure. Great lighting, perspective, and the best part, that “Ta-Dah!” expression… Priceless!

Dining By Design: Alessi

February 26, 2007

Sponsored by the New York Times, this space was designed by Alessi for Dining By Design. Very cool, minimal, great chairs, love the writing on the wall – great play on words, “Aless is More”. Are those Frank Gehry cloud lights I see?

DIFFA’s Dining By Design

February 26, 2007

This past weekend, the much anticipated DIFFA’s Dining By Design, presented by Elle Decor and GE Monogram, was held in NYC and it dazzled! To those of you not familiar with DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS), they organize Dining by Design, an annual fund-raising event. It is here that some of the most talented names in the design world are given a blank canvas – an 11′ x 11′ space – to transform into a dining room, with the focus being the tabletop. As long as ten can be seated, there are no limitations, so you can imagine the pleasure of creating one of these rooms, as well as being a guest viewing it – they’re so beautiful to see in person. I’ll share images from Dining By Design all day here on decor8, so stay tuned. You may even spot Margaret Russell…
