My kitchen designs for 
Art Of The Table
are getting better each day.  
Today I am happy to announce
a generous giveaway from VIYET NY.  
Not only is Viyet giving me these four beautiful kitchen bar stools for my kitchen design, but then they are asking me to give them away after the October 23 event!  Here's the skinny...

Art of The Table is sponsored by Traditional Home magazine, Lenox and Bilotta Kitchen, and hosted during NYC's tabletop week.  I am one of four designers to have been chosen to stylize a kitchen in Bilotta showroom at the Architects & Designers building in NYC.  All four kitchens will be on display together during a cocktail gala this Thursday, October 23 at Bilotta kitchen.  I plan to warm up this gleaming white and chrome state-of-the-art kitchen with lots of DKNY tableware and accessories. I'm happy to report I have secured some of my favorite pieces from generous friends RabLab, Michele Varian and Kim Seybert who have loaned me items in order to whip up an inviting kitchen showcasing a fall outdoor party held indoors.  I will channel my love for the farmer's market, the bounties of fall, and the idea that we not only cook in our kitchen today, but live.  I plan to show the warmth and versatility of today's kitchen. 
I'm over the moon that Viyet NY has offered these vintage stools to give away to someone who visits my kitchen.  I will announce the winner on Friday, October 24.  For a chance to win you must attend the party, drop your business card into a bowl I will have prominently displayed on the kitchen island, then I will randomly choose a name as the winner!

About these incredible bar stools:
The wood and metal bar stools are from Walter Craven, who was deemed a "metal master" by Architectural Digest magazine.  Craven designed the set, which are  exemplary of his exceptional craftsmanship.  Originally procured from Craven’s design company, Blank and Cables, these custom bar stools were carefully crafted with walnut and wrought iron. Adjustable back height, depth and seat height allow for exceptional functionality and comfort. Sold as a set of 4 and on the Viyet website originally for $4,560.
Viyet's Designer Lookbooks
Viyet offers online access to name brands generally only available in showrooms, and at a 50% - 80% off retail, and with a quick 1-2 week lead time.  This is appealing to both the consumer and the designer in this competitive market, and there is quite the buzz around town about how they offer designer brands, some vintage, in this easy and affordable format.  

Last spring I visited the design team in their new headquarters in Soho, and learned about the many exciting programs they have in the works. Additionally, their easy-to-use format with well sourced items explains why Viyet is quickly becoming the go-to destination for interior designers. It is refreshing to note Viyet regularly reaches out to the design community collaborating on projects and events.  You may remember last spring they donated items to my room at Design On A Dime in New York City, then profiled me and my design work on their blog.

Best of luck, and I look forward to seeing these 
lovely bar stools in the lucky winner's kitchen soon.
Happy Nesting
