Right before Christmas, I was asked by New York event designer and good friend, Lindsay Landman and Amanda Allen of Newlywish to come photograph a table they designed for Isaac Mizrahi. Newlywish is an alternative online registry service for chic, sophisticated New York couples. Isaac approached her about designing a holiday table showcasing some of the products available on Newlywish for his weekly webisodes. This shoot was a lot of fun because we did it at Isaac Mizrahi’s studio. His studio is set up for his webisodes, various product photo shoots as well as his QVC show. He had different sections of the space set up like a kitchen, living room, bathroom etc. Really neat to see all the TV lights and then to look through the glass windows and see everyone working in the office. You would never know all those things were in the same space from viewing a photo or watching the TV.
Lindsay Landman found some cool eclectic chairs, a bench and a table from various parts of the studio. She then used a pashmina for a table runner and mismatched plates for the place settings. Each Jason Miller plate from Bobby Berk Home gave a little twist to the homey yet still formal table. She used various pieces from stores like Fish’s Eddy, Bobby Berk Home and Bowery Kitchen: which are all found on Newlywish. My favorite piece of the entire project was the dog painting, Isaac had on one of the walls in the studio. It just adds to the living room feel and works well with all the colors.
