While I was wowed by many of the beautiful tables at last week's Dining by Design, the table that surprised and impressed me the most was created by San Francisco designers John Bradfield and Maryam Monsef. Combining beautiful elements from nature with a sophisticated and elegant palette, the table's — and designers' — popularity was reflected in the number of people drawn to it. Bradfield cited his inspiration for the tablesetting as the 2006 Fall/Winter runway show by Alexander McQueen, and was particularly influenced by a single dress. Find out what dress inspired Bradfield, as well as more about the table, in my interview with the designer.
