DIFFA was inspiring

DIFFA stands for Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids. I never knew, I'm a newbie to the whole thing, but I have to say it was my favorite part of the Architectural Digest's Furniture Show, Dining By Design. Here are some of my favs.

Look in the upper left hand corner (here's a closer look) and you'll see origami cranes hanging from the ceiling. Very cool. (I also had the idea to hang origami cranes from the ceiling at my wedding reception years ago) It was nice to see it in another presentation.

Here's a nice twist on Delphware industrial style. I did a double take on the plates, so great. I thought the street lamp napkins looked elegant too.

I loved the half opened umbrella lights. There's was another setting that used upside down plastic beach buckets and shovels in a similar fashion. I didn't get a picture of them, but they looked very island style!

Talk about getting all dressed up for an event. This was fun.


  1. hey! i remember the cranes for your reception...i was actually getting pretty good at folding them. then when we were helping damon with folding cranes for his wedding i was so out of practice...oh well. anyway, thanks again for calling when natalie was in the hospital and thanks for the book too. we're all feeling better now.

  2. how can i contact you?

  3. Hey Joe, thanks for the fond memories too! Don't know whether I could fold the cranes so easily, I'm very out of practice!

  4. Hi Anonymous,
