Dining by Design

Each year the San Francisco’s Design Center transforms from a showroom showcase into a host for a plethora of micro-dining rooms. Each with its own unique style and flair. What fun eh?! And all for a good cause too!

Better yet, last year, we were honored to join some of their creative forces.

Offering up our grape-wood airplan laden table top and vertical gardens and our oh so charming teardrop dioramas- we helped complete the dining scene with the Karen Villanueva and Paul O’Rourke’s installation.

“Creating a connection through design.” – San Francisco based design firms: Villanueva Design and Paul O’Rourke Design

Their dining room reflected the essence of our city’s contemporary urban-ism with a tossed in bit of organic – to make it oh so San Francisco. Nature juxtaposed with man-made  created a warm and welcoming room.

Brassy Bowl-o-Succulents

Found in a charming antique mall in So. California this almost 2′ wide bowl was uncovered and taken ‘home’ to Lila B. It was quickly deemed the perfect host for a urban mini landscape but where-0-where shall it reside?

Moments after this photo was snapped, it found the perfect temporary home. Set atop a huge dining table- the brassy bowl-0-Succulents, stones, Thistle, Air plants, and wood chunks was a fitting centerpiece for a unique wedding celebration dinner.

The party has ended but our arrangement lives on… this beauty will soon to be back in our studio. Now, we ask, who else will enjoy this grand piece next?
