We all have a masculine and feminine side. For this year’s DIFFA Dining by Design, Kati Curtis expressed the interplay between boy and girl in all of us, via her sensational table design with the New York Design Center.
Playing with the gender stereotypes that we-all-too-easily fall prey to, Kati created a half masculine, half feminine fantasy world utilizing the New York Design Center’s crafted materials and playful patterns. She did a fantastic job, with help from DCM Fabrication, who created the structure, and The Work Room, who fabricated the upholstery and drapery.
