Hello it’s from Marina Case of The Red Shutters. Earlier this month the ASID celebrated its 40th anniversary at the same party where the D&D Building celebrated its 50th anniversary! We started with a tour which caused me to realize that I didn’t know the D&D Building half as well as I thought I did. Under the watchful guidance of ASID President, Robin Baron we saw all kinds of surprises! For example, the line of fabric shown below can be ordered in any color of your choice. You choose from these hanging panels at the John Rosselli beautifully redesigned showroom . There are at least 4 huge racks of colors to choose from!
Another great find was The Silver Peacock, the only tabletop source in the building. So if you can’t get to downtown NYC to the gift building you can choose your favorite china, crystal, flatware, bedding, throws and more at this very fun source. Many of their items are are from small privately held companies which means you can put together special tables with items your guests have never seen before. I love to help my clients learn how to entertain and set their tables which makes this an awesome and special find!
Another special find for incredible quality organic modern furniture was Biasi Catani on the 8th floor …..Exquisite quality combined with special woods and lovely objects which are hand crafted in South America. For example the chandelier and blown glass lamps shown below create a striking focal point in this dining room. Some of their fun hide stools and a custom bar are also shown below along with a cool floor lamp.
These Brazilian stone rock crystals are made by a talented artist named Melina Liberman which make beautiful table decor pieces or “home jewlrey!” Marie Rivera the Biasi Catani Showroom manager is shown below holding the energizing piece of art.
Jodi is the Vice President and Director of Marketing of the D&D building and has been bringing creative and interesting new events to us since she started. (She is shown above and below)Thank you Jodi! Also a special thanks to Kimberly Coughlin of the D&D Marketing team who does a lot of behind the scenes work and always has a lovely smile when checking us into the various events!
Many thanks to the ASID where I have been recently admitted as an Associate Member and thank you to the D&D for hosting this very cool event! I learned so much.
