Jewelry designer Mckenzie Liautaud, in collaboration with interior design expert Robert Verdi, showcased his brand at this year's Dining by Design. Held annually in March, DIFFA invites local and international designers to transform a raw space into a showcase of over the top environments. Liautaud's display invited guests to marvel at the beauty of pearls and the creatures that created them. Guests perched on pearl like stools at an oyster shell covered table dressed with an ocean-inspired theme.
"I've always loved pearls as their mysterious beauty is born in the ocean , I'm equally captivated by dazzling stars that dance around the skies at night," says Mckenzie.
Dining by Design raises funds for Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids. Co-located with the Architectural Design Show, DIFFA's signature event gathers thousands of supporters in New York City to fundraise for an important charity. The event combines a worthy cause and exceptional design into a 5-day event with more than 12,000 attendees. www.diffa.org
