Take your din­ner par­ties to a new level with this table­top look by Stephanie Brown.

It’s the kind of in­ter­ac­tive de­sign ex­pe­ri­ence that you have to see to be­lieve: for Din­ner by De­sign, 15 de­sign­ers cre­ate “ta­blescapes” that range from the as­pi­ra­tional to the mag­i­cal (we won’t for­get the cross-stitched ceil­ing in­stal­la­tion that de­signer Kelly Deck cre­ated one year—a mere 140 hours or so in the mak­ing). It’s an im­mer­sive cou­ple of days: guests tour the ta­bles at a buzzy cock­tail party the first night, or over din­ner right in each space the next. This year the Van­cou­ver event moves to Novem­ber 16 and 17, with de­sign­ers like Stark and Cham­bers, and Jamie Ban­field con­firmed to dream up a space, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the Vis­ual Col­lege of Art and De­sign.
