Nest by Tamara's Top Picks for Tabletop Finds at NY NOW Winter Opening Day

tabletop at NY NOW 
with IFDA Selects
 I was asked to choose my favorite tabletop piece at the show, and I chose RabLabs' gold strainer bowl. Today was opening day for the Winter NY NOW show.  With two big designer events on Nest by Tamara's Spring Calendar -- we are decorating a table at this April's Lenox Hill Neighborhood House tabletop gala at Cipriani on April 15, and a room at the upcoming Design On A Dime design charity event for Housingworks on April 23rd at the Metropolitan Pavilion -- we are looking for inspiration around every corner.  

NY NOW is expansive and more visually stunning than ever before, so we decided to focus in one area.  As part of an effort with IFDA Selects I was asked to judge BEST IN SHOW for tabletop.  I chose these gorgeous mesh gold bowls that with their glass inserts would make one stylish soup bowl on a host's table this winter.  The 24k gold plated mesh design was inspired by sea fans, and the design is stunning and unusual!  See other favorite tabletop finds we spotted that  topped our list.   

Happy Nesting
