DIY: An Architect-Inspired Thanksgiving Table from Designer David Stark

November 21, 2016

This Thanksgiving, NYC event designer David Stark and team are seeing squares everywhere—in homewares (and clothing)—which inspired them to create a minimal, modern take on fall entertaining.

Photography by Corrie Hogg of David Stark Design for Remodelista.

Above: That’s not a tablecloth—it’s a Quaderna Table by Italian design house Zanotta, designed in 1970 and made of white laminate with a screen-printed grid. The bistro chairs are David’s own, but he suggests similar versions at Serena & Lily.
