A creative collaboration of event and interior designers, this year’s New York Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) Dining by Design event showcased a series of elaborate tabletop installations. Co-located with the Architectural Digest Home Show, the event, which is also a fund-raising dinner, is just one of six Dining by Design events held in U.S. cities throughout the year.
Here’s a look at our favorite Instagram moments from Dining by Design 2015, showcasing some awe-inspiring tabletop looks and design ideas for spring.
