Inspiration

Picnic By Design 2017

Each year, we partner with the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) to host Picnic by Design, a charitable event that celebrates design, food and innovation. Designers, manufacturers and artists create custom picnic baskets (often with a little help from our wide array of fabrics) to be auctioned off. The funds raised support nonprofit organizations across the country combating HIV and AIDS.

Here are the inspiring concepts our design collaborators pulled together for this special event...

Inspired by Charlie Parker’s 1940s jazz standard “A Night in Tunisia,” designer Antoinette Loupe used fabrics reminiscent of Beni Ourain rugs and Berber kilims in our inky black hue, Onyx.

Using the Danish philosophy of hygge to guide her, designer Michele Alfano chose fabrics in airy, light hues and modern graphic patterns to mimic the cozy yet restrained Scandinavian lifestyle.

Looking to fun and colorful pop culture sources like the television show Rupaul’s Drag Race, designer Tyler Wisler created his fabulous basket with overtly feminine chinchilla and silky pink fabrics.
