Many of you have read or heard about our installation for DIFFA’S DINING BY DESIGN which took place this past March. So many of you contibuted in so many ways – with construction, with objects, with financial and moral support — we’re so thankful. Now we can show you what we did! Please look below to see our video and to see some of the beautiful photographs that were taken.

The shelving provides an architectural element to display Madame’s collection. Square shelves are replicated in the square shapes of the custom-designed acrylic dressing table and dining cubes. Custom-designed chaise, cushions and bench add a contrasting soft texture.
