Dining By Design: NYDC and Shaver/Melahn Design

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.

Dining By Design: Elle Decor + Margaret Russell

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.

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!
