This past weekend Aria Stone Gallery attended the DIFFA Dining by Design event benefiting the fight against aids in conjunction with the Architectural Digest’s Home Design Show. There, we were able to experience a wonder of artistry from top designers and architectural firms who had collaborated to create unique and exciting dining spaces. Here are just a few installations  that really caught our eye.

Gensler + 3 Form Gensler + 3Form

This piece was described as outside|inside. They created this space to really blur the lines of an indoor space that gave you the full feeling and vision of outdoors. This clean modern aesthetic sure accomplished that.DSC_0012New York Design Center, designed by Marks & Franks

This rich table scape depicts old hollywood glamour mixed with the secret world of backstage. The Celerie Kemble Cassandra Chair in emerald green creates a magical adornment to the stage wall’s peacock statues, but regardless we want to be at this dinner party.


The show stopper of this table is definitely the china. The elaborate colored patterns are tied together with rich gold accents is just pure eye candy. With an adorned asian war horse painting the whole space is nicely tied together.


Arteriors created this lit work of art with a table scape that was built for conversation. The clear round table allows the architectural marvel, that is the base and center piece take center stage.

Kravet Inc designed Hunt Slonem

The perfect kick off for Easter. This table scape was created by Neo-Expressionist Hunt Slonem with paintings of exotic animals and tropical plants. His work was translated by Lee Jofa into a collection of fabrics wallpaper and carpets.

New York School of Interior Design and Pratt Institute

Nothing is more exciting than seeing new emerging talent. The students of NYS of Interior Design and Pratt Design School created two installations for DIFFA. The New York School of Interior Design’s table was a minimalist modern space that gave you a futuristic sushi vibe. The second project by Pratt Institute looks like the set of the television show Friends and Alice in Wonderland met in Brooklyn. It is a truly unique eclectic space that you would provide you a truly memorable evening.
