Owners of Elegant Affairs, NYC worked regularly at Windows on the World, providing florals and tablescaping for various special events. A sample set of the dining ware used at the restaurant was given to the owners when the company contracted with the restaurant as a client. Designed by Milton Glaser, the dining ware used in the restaurant included motifs of a rising sun and an evening sky.
