New York City infused with spring freshness, beginning with the Architectural Digest Home Show

Spring has sprung 
in New York City...
We have lots on our design agenda this spring, 
and the AD Home Show 
rings in the season each year here in New York City.  First, IFDA NY chapter members stop in this past weekend, soaking up the inspirational tabletop design at the adjoining Diffa's Dining by Design event. 
In case you missed it, there were plenty of creative tables with designers and brands joining forces showing us tabletop fodder.  
Check out a few of our favorites...

 the moody, sultry space and table from Arteriors Home illustrated a creative use of black walls, gold and nature-inspired design.  With these signature pieces combined, the result was glamorous.  
Arterior's Zanadoo light
Diane Von Furstenberg for Kravet fabric
showcased a unique mixing of color and patterns.  We all agreed we'd love to join the party and dine al fresco 
at this celebratory table.

 Another favorite was the beautiful homage paid by Kara Mann to Maya Romanoff.  With the recent passing of Romanoff, the space was beautifully put together capturing his talent and aesthetic while showcasing his gorgeous textiles, some of which were pulled from the archives.
Additionally, there were lovely wares over at the AD Home show, and while we were on the look-out for the latest, we popped into see IFDA friend, Wild Chairy's booth in the MADE section of the AD show (you may remember Andrea Mahalik of Wild Chairy designed a chair for last year's first annual IFDA Take A Seat chair charity auction).
