Top Ten: AD Design Show & DIFFA (Part Two)

Top Ten: AD Design Show & DIFFA (Part Two)


After attending the Architectural Digest Design Show and DIFFA, I left feeling very inspired. I was even more inspired to find out that DIFFA’S Dining By Design event raised $700,000 towards national HIV/AIDS prevention and education programs. This organization is absolutely wonderful, isn’t it? Such important work and such. fun event to attend.

Some of these top ten picks will be featured in-depth quite soon so we wanted to introduced them to you first. Be sure to check out part one of my top ten here.


These mesmerizing hand blown glass creations are made in Philadelphia. A husband and wife team, I have been a longtime fan of Vetro Vero and was thrilled to meet them at the show. Without a doubt, there will be more on this dynamic duo coming soon! 

7. DIFFA: LUXE MAGAZINE TABLEdesigned by Wesley Moon

Hanging flowers, a flower-fabric backdrop, and incredible tabletop and a purple flower centerpiece bursting with color made this dining set up convinces me that spring is just around the corner. Interior Designer extraordinaire Wesley Moon created such a fun environment and running into him at the show was a highlight of my day for sure. More with Wesley soon as well! Right, Wesley?

8. DIFFA: DONGHIA TABLEby Bennett Leifer

Bennett! You did it again. What an elegant atmosphere  you created here for Donghia. Truly stunning. Designer Bennett Leifer is one of my favorites as you might already know and you can learn more about him here


Upstate designer Ehrlich creates light and simple glassware. They appear quite delicate but once you hold a glass in your hands, you realize it is stronger than it seems. And then you realize how badly you want those glasses on your shelves.


Cotterman creates a hand-blown whiskey glass and cube glass combo that is sure to come in handy for Father’s Day gifts. He also makes delightfully rounded lamps as seen, all in Los Angeles.
