a "glammed up" affair...

Que es DIFFA? For those that don't know, DIFFA stands for Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, and is one of the country's largest supporters of direct care for people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as preventative education for those at risk. Every year DIFFA puts on a fundraiser called Dining by Design (presented by Ellle Decor and GE Monogram), which showcases some of the most over the top dining scenes/installations by celebrated designers and corporations we love. Thus creating a night of extravagant dining, in which proceeds from the night go to benefit a really great cause!!!


This event ultimately pushes the creative envelope...each scene so uniquely different from the next (which are all featured in July/August issue of Elle Decor), AND this year they went glam! Well, at least this was the case with Shaver/Melahn Studios and their creation, presented at the New York Design Center...which consisted of white vintage furniture, stunning calligraphy fabric, floating round fluted mirrors...oh and to top it all off a real life glamour girl :)

Love it! I haven't received my Elle Decor yet. All my friends are telling me that this month's issue which spotlight's DBD is fabulous. I went to the event in New York earlier this year and all I can is...DIFFA is a great organization and DBD get's better every year"!
