An A for the AD Show

The Architectural Digest Home Design Show might be over, but there is still one more trip to Pier 94 in store for me. Tonight I have the honor of attending DIFFA’s Dining By Design Gala, which will help raise money for AIDS and pay tribute to the one-and-only Margaret Russell who has been the driving force behind DBD and has helped shaped it into what it is today. I’ve spent the better part of three days admiring all the work and creativity that went into this installations, I can’t wait to actually dine in one. Check Design-Calendar tomorrow for photos.

But first, a recap of the Architectural Digest Home Design Show….It was packed, to put it mildly. I guess Friday’s warm, spring air got everyone in the shopping spirit! Speaking of spring, fresh colors popped up all over the show. I took a group around on Saturday as part of the NYDC‘s curated tour program and spotted pops of honeysuckle, turquoise, purple (from lavender to eggplant), lime green, orange and chartreuse in just about every booth. ┬áIn addition to fresh new products, the show included live culinary demonstrations in the Electrolux kitchen, standing room only lectures in The New York Times theater, and access to The Artist’s Project and DIFFA’s Dining By Design. We caught a few show highlights on our iPhone camera, but want to know what YOU liked best. Please feel free to upload your favorite products to our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/DesignCalendar.

Zelouf + BELL touch on two big trends with this bar - it's both colorful and space saving!

Speaking of color, check out this regal chair from The New Traditionalists!

I'm a big fan, so I snapped a photo of this handblown glass pendant from Lindsay Adelman in the MADE section.

The New York Times Conference Program drew big names and a big crowd!
