Since there were so many lovely tables and I took so many photos, I'm going to split by DIFFA Dining by Design coverage up into a few posts. Since it's spring and the Architectural Digest table is full of flowers, I thought I would begin with them.
The chairs are from Restoration Hardware and the tablecloth is Marais fabric by Suzanne Kasler for Lee Jofa. The chandelier is from Oly Sudio.
Glassware is from ABC Carpet & Home.
Flatware is from Design Within Reach.
Poppy decoupage plates from John Derian.
Since Alfredo Parades of Ralph Lauren is being honored for his work with DIFFA, the Ralph Lauren team pulled out all the stops on their table within a cabin.
The firewood is actually only a few inches thick.
Love the throw blankets and cozy details.
I hear that Ralph Lauren himself will be on hand for the gala dinner Monday night to toast Alfredo.
I didn't get a shot of it but there were faux icicles hanging off the roof of the cabin. Ralph Lauren thinks of every detail.
There was even a fire burning.
Alfredo Parades also had a table that he is hosting that was designed by Mark Cunningham Inc.
Benjamin Moore created an amazing book wall which set the tone for the table inside designed by David Stark Design.
Each guest has a pashmina on the back of their chair.
All the paper cut outs were so cute.
The table was created with books in the same color as the paint color on their spine.
Part of the backdrop was an open book. So creative!
Another place setting.
A better view of the book backdrop.
More creative cut outs.
My favorite part of their table was the bookshelves.
A place for Dan.
