Dining By Design - DIFFA for Architectural Digest Home Show

This past Thursday heralding the arrival of Spring (even though it snowed here in New York),  was the Opening of the annual Home Design Show presented by Architectural Digest Magazine.  As usual it delivered countless shopping resources for Hospitality, Residential and Commercial design solutions. rugs, kitchen products, flooring, windows and furniture and textiles galore!

I especially enjoy talking to the manufacturers of handmade textiles, wood tables and glass products. I am always the 'down to support crafts girl"!

I attended on Thursday and the line to get inside was incredible in the morning!  One of the highlights of the show is DIFFA Design Industries DINING BY DESIGN brought to us by Trustees Alfredo Parades (of Ralph Lauren) and Cindy Allen.  The exhibit shows incredible tablescapes by some of the most creative designers.  It's always a great opportunity to see some of my favorite designers strolling about and chat it up with them,. Attending inspirational seminars introducing new products and wares, always keeps me abreast of new things on the horizon or in development.

For many of us, who've been attending for years it's like Homecoming Weekend at some universities.  Many sponsored by textile houses and manufactures.  Forgive me if I've forgotten a name or two.

Enjoy some of my favorites here... Got my brand new camera and took these photos at the show! Never know when I might sneak up on you! So smile pretty!
