In his latest inspiring book, Stark reveals from start to finish how his artistic, whimsical and unexpected designs created some of the most elegant private and charitable events. As you will discover, a variety of sustainable, industrial and low-cost materials are used to showcase various themes and color palettes creating memorable detailed events.
“Even something as basic as the seating chart offers an opening to make a party special, when a particularly thoughtful pairing can mean the difference between stimulating and stultifying. Those layers of detail are what sets our events apart and what people find astounding. We’ve learned to plant surprises, big and small, as a series of moments that unfold as the event progresses and as guests physically move around. This delivers a sense of discovery that keeps the party moving and keeps guests intrigued,” says Stark.
David Stark: The Art of the Party takes readers on a creative journey demonstrating Stark’s inspirational process and thoughtful coordinated details. Go behind-the-scenes of high-profile events including not-for-profit organizations, unbelievable weddings and forward thinking corporations. Thousands of Dr. Seuss books become a sculpture for a Target event at The New York Public Library, colored pencils become undulating ‘tablescapes’ at an American Patrons of The Tate Museum fundraiser and thousands of baseball cards and foam ‘fan fingers’ become the backdrop and place settings for a sports lover’s bar mitzvah.
David Stark is a New York-based event producer and designer and has created imaginative events for clients including The Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre, Entertainment Weekly, Beyoncé Knowles, Martha Stewart, Mariska Hargitay, Glenn Close and Jon Stewart, major corporations such as Target, TBS and Condé Nast, as well as high-visibility fund-raising galas for the nation’s most elite not-for-profit organizations including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Joyful Heart Foundation and The Metropolitan Opera.

Some people prefer to have their iPhone unadorned, but for those of us who know the reality of accidentally putting your keys in the same pocket or accidentally dropping your phone, a case isn’t a bad idea. Here’s five suggestions to tap into your personal style while protecting your precious mobile.
If you read the works of Roald Dahl then you’ll be aware of the tale of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. One day, a poor boy is given some money to purchase a chocolate bar made by the world-famous Willy Wonka. Upon opening it, he finds a golden ticket – an invitation to a tour of Wonka’s factory, and one that will change his life. Unfortunately there is no real Willy Wonka (or so we think, at least), but there is this fantastic iPhone case that looks like one of the luckiest bars of Wonka chocolate in the world.
This Glacier Case from O2 is pretty conventional as far as cases go, but it’s definitely one of the sleekest and most fashionable cases we’ve ever seen. The case looks as if someone artfully coated your iPhone with a thin layer of ice. The case is also quilted and will lose none of it’s sleek look while keeping your phone protected. Definitely a winner.
If you were a child of the 80s, some of the first music you ever heard likely came out of a cassette tape. Regardless of how convincing, the Tape Case from Redbubble looks, it’s actually not going to do much if you stick it in a ghetto blaster. This case is labeled – “Love is Mixtapes” – which sets it off perfectly for those who want to represent their love of ‘old-school’ music with their iPhone case.
Gaming fans — this case is for your. Many of us let go of our portable gaming devices some time ago, but the Game Boy Case from Redbubble brings flashbacks of hand-held good times.
This case is for all you “green” techies. The Bamboo Case from Snugg is a high quality case made of real bamboo. A slim profile protective hard case that is environmentally friendly.

Not only are there Tons of Tiles on the market today that have been reclaimed and recycled, but there are also thousands more from companies that invest the necessary funds to offset their carbon footprint and thus produce genuinely green tiles that happen to also be stunning as can be.
Anyone looking to afford their bathroom floor a new dynamic while sleeping easy at night with a clear conscience really doesn’t have to limit their choices in the process. Simply opt for a responsible tile retailer or a well-known reclaimed tile brand and there’s really no limit to what you can accomplish.
One of the most stunning bathroom floor tiling concepts you’ll ever come across is that of an abstract mosaic created with reclaimed or broken tile pieces which are summarily grouped together as specifically or randomly as you like. Either in a small area as a decorative feature or covering the whole of the bathroom floor, it’s perfectly possible to create a one-of-a kind finish for next to nothing in terms of investment or environmental impact.
Recycled Glass Tiles
When it comes to sheer brilliance of finish, nothing looks quite ason a bathroom floor as recycled glass tiles. There are literally hundreds of colors to choose from and that can be kept as uniform or abstract in color combinations, resulting in the most striking of high-gloss finishes that also happen to be superbly resistant to daily use and abuse.
Recycled Glass Pebbles
Ever wondered how you can create a stunning and ornate cobblestone look and feel for the bathroom floor? Recycled glass pebbles are sourced from a variety of industries and are a little like lavishing the floor of your bathroom with a million and one bright and brilliant gemstones. You can keep to a single color, mix a few amazing shades together or create your own designs and motifs to be permanently displayed – all while having zero negative impact on the environment.
Recycled Metal Tiles
The perfect way to accent a bathroom where wood or neutral tones are present, stunning metal tiles offer the total package of beauty, strength and convenience – not to mention that can be sourced 100% recycled. Aluminium in particular is built to last and chances are would still be looking quite the picture long after the rest of the home has crumbled.
Last but not least, modern linoleum is not only incredibly durable, available in limitless designs and massively cheap – it is also pretty much toxin-free and can be made 100% biodegradable. It’s also an excellent choice for bathrooms with underfloor heating systems and is quite frankly the easiest flooring on the face of the Earth to install, remove and re-install once again.
