Does anyone have big plans? I think I will wind up whooping at midnight with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin. However, in anticipation, I’ve been thinking about bars and bar carts. Here are a few nice ones from around the web:

David Stark at DIFFA: Dining by Design


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Thanks so much to Casey over at David Stark’s office for sending me some shots of David’s table at DIFFA Dining By Design last weekend.

Paint can pendants; you can try this at home!

Even without the fumes, dining in this paint can would certainly make me high. I love the way he has deconstructed the dinner settings.  The whole oversized paint brush thing paired with the checkerboard table certainly has a down the rabbit hole vibe!

Check out the rest of David Stark Design and Production here. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but right now I’m swooning over the Metropolitan Opera’s 125th Anniversery Gala. All the graphics came from the Met’s archives. Bravo! (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself…):
