my top five favorites from dining by design chicago 2009!
the event is headed by DIFFA,
Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS
to raise awareness and funds to fight AIDS.
almost 50 tables were at the Chicago event!

gotta tell somebody

stolichnaya elit's table at dining by design chicago 2009
designed by jason wu and giancarlo valle is out of this world.
this is my absolute favorite table of the event!
it had a sharp minimal feel with amazing detail.
they used sound proofing foam to line the interior
and created a custom lighting piece.
the tabletop was completely covered with
a collection of different bar glass.
absolutely stunning!!!!
