(Sorry. I know it’s late. I was out having fun.) I told you this morning how excited I was to be going to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, and I’m happy to report that the show did not disappoint.

Tonight (it’s 3 AM, so I guess I should say this morning), I’m posting about the  DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) Dining by Design exhibition, then tomorrow, when I’ve sorted out my notes (and finished uploading my pictures), I’ll write about the exhibitors and all the nifty stuff we saw.

I will say that we were not quite as blown away by this year’s DIFFA dining exhibit entries as we were with last year’s. Maybe it’s the layout (this year they were in a separate pier, which space was fairly stark), maybe it’s this year’s trends, or maybe it was just that my feet hurt (a lot). However, there were still a good number we truly loved. Here’s our top faves. The rest of my pictures can be seen in my Flickr album.
