From FortyOne Madison’s Tabletop Show to the showrooms of the Architects & Designers Building, New York has been bursting with new trends and accessories for dining this fall. To celebrate the occasion, Bilotta, a company best known for its custom cabinetry, invited four local designers for their second time hosting "Art of the Table."
Commenting on the event, principal Regina Bilotta said, “We are thrilled to have our New York showroom graced by the participating designers, their beautiful products, and designs.” Last year, all of the designers were men, so Bilotta turned the tables - so to speak - and invited all women to participate this year. Carol Brewer, principal of Carol Brewer Interiors; Allison Hennessy, principal of Allison Hennessy Interior Design; Jennifer Post, principal of Jennifer Post Design, and Nancy J. Ruddy, founding principal of CetraRuddy each took over a section of the showroom.
The result was four exquisite spaces from Ruddy’s winter wonderland with powdery faux snow to Carol Brewer’s bright room decorated with floral arrangements by Bella Meyer. Each vignette not only highlighted the product but also brought elegance to each kitchen space.
