One of the most notable things about seeing this year’s vignettes at Dining By Design was the huge variation in each designers vision for their space. Since it’s not like a show house where there are certain rules, dining by design is a blank slate for the designers to just have fun. I shared some of the vignettes last week in part one and today I bring you more…the glamorous to the crazy.
This vignette designed by Bronson Van Wyck for Architectural Digest was one of my favorites. I love the Curry chandelier and the tented striped fabric along with the Moroccan inspired wall treatment (couldn’t tell if it was paper or fabric). I’ve always had a fantasy to dine in a tent in the desert maybe while on safari.
Speaking of fantasy, this room certainly fit the bill. Lit with all blue lights the table was set under tree branches hung with Spanish moss.
This next vignette was all about glitz and glamour. Sparkling crystal sheets were hung under spot lights to illuminate the table and the walls were constructed with reflective panels. It would be like dining inside a silver jewelry box with Marilyn as your dinner companion.
This one done by Marks and Frantz was another one I was drawn to. Those green and gold chairs are amazing and I love the green orchids tucked into broad leaf green plants running down the table. The glass sputnik chandelier and vintage Opera photo mural add to the old Hollywood glamorous look and feel.
There were some crazy dining rooms as well. This one by Evette Rios for Moen might induce a seizure while dining but how fun! Notice how she used their shower heads as the chandeliers.
Minimalism was on display in a few rooms like this one done by Arteriors. Obviously the Arteriors Brutalist inspired chandelier and wall scones were the focal point in this room. Something about that heavy metal chandelier hanging above that glass table made me a bit uneasy but the small stools don’t look like they would encourage long drawn out after dinner conversation anyways .
Don’t know who designed this room, but like Arteriors, more contemporary design with not very comfortable looking “chairs”. Perfect for dining under the full moon though.
This dining room was by Ralph Lauren. Obviously the focus is on their paint color offerings but it would be fun to eat at this table just the same.
Great idea using the paint cans as flower vases and paint stirring sticks as name cards.
Anthropologie created a colorful vignette with a “tree ” made from old wood scraps and bright blue flowers made from plastic bottles. I loved that they chose just two colors, pink and blue and then used neutrals for the walls and furniture. It really makes the pink and blue pop.
This last one was a mystery to me but hey, it’s Orange, one of my favorite colors so I have gone ahead and included it. Plus, this room seems to be all about drinking wine and I can certainly get on board with that.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the 2015 Dining By Design table vignettes. Which one is your favorite?
