Dining By Design: Elaine Griffin

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…

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

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

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?
