DIFFA’s Dining by Design in BizBash!

June 2, 2010

Shiraz Events worked with Sara Costello and Atomic Design to create a comfortable, classic Hamptons dining table for Cindy Crawford Style for JCPenney. What better way to play-on the household name JCPenney, than with actual pennies? The back wall of the ‘dining room’ flaunted the sponsors names in nothing but glimmering  pennies!

Two weekends ago I visited the DIFFA Dining by Design event. The table that drew my attention the most was created by Michael Tavano for the New York Design Center. The walls of the environment were covered with graffiti art images (which I’m a big fan of) and made the environment very current and hip. The attention to details was so vivid as we see in the monogrammed napkins, the tableware that had graffiti images on them and the print on the upholstered chairs.
