DIFFA Dining by Design 2016

The New York Design Center was thrilled to support DIFFA at the 19th Annual Dining by Design event, held from March 17 – March 21, in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Design Show.

200 Lex celebrated its 90th birthday with an elegant rooftop party set high above the bustling streets of downtown Manhattan. To commemorate nine decades at the Center of Design, Antonino Buzzetta of Antonino Buzzetta Design conceptualized an al fresco dinner party with furnishings exclusively sourced from New York Design Center showrooms.

The dining setting crafted by Buzzetta set the scene for a lively evening that married a quintessential birthday party with iconic New York City. The airy rooftop was complete with a limestone façade, wrought iron railings, NYC inspired graffiti and a classic fire escape. Copious birthday party essentials were playfully elevated including custom made party hats designed with Kravet fabric and trim, a dozen delicious fun-fetti cakes, and rainbow colored balloons galore!
