This past week DIFFA hosted the annual Designing By Design  in NYC.  This year Margaret Russell of Architectural Digest was the honoree.  I'm partial to quite  a few of these as several were designed by people I have recently worked with and one I am presently working with.
Here are a few of my favorite tables-
Designed by Todd Moore for Scalmandre
 This place setting is for the talented interior designer Mathew Patrick Smyth- Photographer John Gruen (who shot all of these pics) and I spent several months last year traveling around the country shooting Matthew's gorgeous work for his upcoming book, Living Traditions.  I'm looking forward to sharing pictures from the book with you soon.
 Designed by Jeffrey Brooks
 Designed Vanessa Panotas
 Designed by Brad Ford for Moore and Giles.
 Designed by Coffiner Ku for the New York Design Center.
 Designed by Stefan Beckman for Coca Cola.   I love Stefan's work- especially his Marc Jacobs sets.
The colored lights in the background change color in this setting by Scandia Home.
 Designed by my friend Jes of Jes Gordon/ Proper Fun.  Hey Jes, wish you were still my neighbor!
Designed by Goil Amornviviat and Thomas Morbitzer for Tug Studio
Designed by 2Michaels for Flor.
And last but not least this table by David Stark for Benjamin Moore. I just finished a shoot with the talented David for the upcoming issue of Rue magazine- stay tuned later this week to see it!
And again a special shout out to photographer John Gruen for shooting all of these stunning pictures for me!
