DIFFA Dining By Design 2014 at the Architectural Digest Home Show

We had the pleasure of visiting the DIFFA Dining by Design showcase at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show this weekend and got a look into what’s new and next for dining room decor. Nature-inspired & abstract patterns punctuated by elaborate specialty light fixtures were overarching themes at the show. Watch for these trends in homes of style setters in the coming months! Check out our favorite looks:

Nature-Inspired

Ralph Lauren Home

As we walked into DIFFA, we were greeted with Ralph Lauren Home’s fresh & carefree dining area that we picture working beautifully outdoors. Lots of laid back linen, distressed wood and a chandelier of twinkling blossoms & branches create the feeling of dining under the stars.

Beacon Hill

Beacon Hill partnered with the well-known design duo 2Michaels, creating a stunning dining area that features its upcoming collection, Floating Silk. The line, which showcases Japonisme & Chinoiserie-inspired prints served as a gorgeous backdrop for the set, making us feel as if we are surrounded by mountains and crashing waves. We especially thought that the bamboo panels around the room provided an ideal finishing touch, reiterating the natural trend that we saw.

STAY TUNED FOR THIS COLLECTION!!

Designtex

This playful dining room from Designtex caught our eye with it’s bright colors and joyous versions of animals like fish, bees and birds paired with an abstract tablecloth. Notice the series of small potted plants on the table, an easy centerpiece that accents basic white dishware, and the punchy bright orange napkins.

Arteriors

Possibly the most whimsical & dramatic dining room at DIFFA was done by Arteriors. The table & seating, made to resemble tree trunks, were complemented by sunburst lighting & evoked mother nature herself. We also liked the  tablescape’s finishing touches of faux leaves and an exotic botanical centerpiece.

Abstract

Diane von Furstenberg for Kravet

Diane von Furstenberg for Kravet’s showcase, the Top Pick for 2014 at DIFFA, made a major statement with a combination of punchy abstract patterns in Celosia orange, watermelon pink and black & white. The display had multiple sectional seating areas that surrounded oblong hot pink tables accented with white orchids and dishware in a conceptual design.

STAY TUNED – COLLECTION COMING IN MAY!

Architectural Digest

Architectural Digest’s table also played on the abstract theme, using two large scale custom patterns reminiscent of expressionist artists like Matisse. Because the print is so bold, simple white leather bench seating and a floral arrangement echoing the colors of the space kept it balanced.

STUDIOS Architecture

Playing on circular shapes seen at different perspectives, STUDIOS Architecture created a centerpiece of translucent disks strung on steel wire from the table to the ceiling. The lit backdrop echoed the centerpiece, while a stainless steel table and chairs provided simple structure.
