NGV ‘Art of Dining’ 2019

Styled by Louisa Curtis

A spectacular display of more than forty tables decorated by some of Australia’s leading designers, architects, florists and couturiers celebrating the art of dining. Best of the Best 2019 Art of dining will take the event to a new dimension with a lavish and wildly creative masked gala. Once again, the Great Hall will be transformed into a surreal wonderland of 40 visually stunning tables, each individually created by creative artists who have all generously donated their services towards this exciting fundraising event.

Imagine the most lavish dinner party, where guests enter a room with the most extravagant table designs and every element is carefully curated and styled with perfection and thought.

S|LC have been chosen to curate an opulent, lavish design in collaboration with renowned florist Michael Strownix at this year’s ‘Best of the Best’. We’re truly honoured to be a part of this year’s exhibition and can’t wait to share our design with Australia. Our theme for Art of Dining is heralded with the use of Tiepolo’s ‘The Banquet of Cleopatra’ as our ‘hero image’, instantly evoking a sense of lavish excess. Featuring Gold Arbour, taxidermy peacocks and eighteenth-century décor.
