A Little NYC Trip.

Last week I zipped down to NYC for a night and got to do some cool stuff.
Like get a tour of the Duralee design studio where they come up with the prints and wovens that we use in our work all the time! I can’t show you a lot of what I saw (sneak previews of some fun new lines) but it was so interesting!
I love that a lot of the creative work isn’t on the computer- concepts for new collections begin as inspiration boards on the walls of the studio- from pictures of fashion to scraps of historical prints…

The amount of work that goes into a single collection is astounding!  This is a new collection coming out soon and they in the process of culling the many choices…

This one, a Bailey & Griffin print, was a combination of a historical print but redone in scale and color and then combined with a graphic backround. I LOVE IT.

Then that night I went to the DIFFA Dining By Design cocktail reception to see all the fun tables designed by various designers.  This one was my favorite- love the chandelier by Arteriors and the fun chairs by Celerie Kemble for Henredon.

Some of the other tables (and pardon the quality of the photos- the lighting was SO tricky in there!)

I got to stay at the new Viceroy and it was wonderful! The location was perfect and the rooms super comfy. And the windows…. pure awesome.
