Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


Dining By Design II

Bold stripes and eclectic chairs from Carol Helms for Benjamin Moore.

The table below needs no explanation.

Above, modern Bacchanalia reference in a setting by Marc Blackwell for Rosemount Estate.

Bernat Creative was ultra-femme. Unfortunately my photos don't do justice to the ruffled tablecloth. Below, something a bit more masculine and Asian-inspired from Bob Brown for Delta Airlines.

Above, Steve Bales for Atlantan Bride Magazine.

Sorry the images above are so dim. Design by Laslie-Williams Interiors.

Lovely ottomans and wicker chairs used by Chris Casey and Douglas Weiss.

Smart Glass used a dramatic link-style chandelier.

Below, Novare Group went with sleek and elegant.

Susan B. Bozeman's natural charm.

Below, Expo Design Center drama.

Loren Audrey Taylor created glamour for Atlanta Classic Cars, below.

Chip Cheatham for Pierce Martin beautifully handled the challenge of designing the AIDS Memorial Table. Those of us who've lost a loved one to AIDS signed the placemats.

There were so many more amazing tables that I didn't capture with my camera, but I hope this gives you a sense of all the hard work that goes into this annual happening. To learn more, visit Dining By Design.

Appreciate the details by clicking pictures to enlarge.

I like the chandelier all right but I really love the birds on the wall. It's truly a flight of fancy (excuse the pun...)

Anna Spiro said...

I'm overwhelmed. At each image I would think, "Oh, this is my favorite." and then the next and the next. What a fun event. Our DBD in KC is in one ballroom - fabulous tables, but nothing as elaborate as this. Wonderful.

fabulous - I just wish you had captured a full length picture of the ruffled tablecloth :( and I don't get the upside down Jeffrey. explain, please!!!


Style Court said...

Joni, yeah I'm really sorry about the tablecloth shot.

With Jeffrey, I just meant it was pretty obvious the table was done by the boutique because it was covered in Jeffrey shopping bags :) I think the upside down placement might have been about illumination or perhaps to be unexpected.

Everyone, thanks for showing your appreciation! The designers worked so hard on this.

Things That Inspire said...

Oh, the chandeliers...all of them are wonderful.
