Last week, Lonny had the pleasure of co-hosting a cocktail hour with DESIRON as part of the New York Design Center's What's New What's Next festival, a night of events celebrating fresh ideas in interiors, materials, and products. Executive Editor Irene Edwards and the Lonny crew fêted the label's fall collection with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres inspired by a few of our favorite pieces, including an electric-blue upholstered chair and a bronze-and-wood bar cart we absolutely must have. (Be sure to check out DESIRON's website in the upcoming months to see these pieces for yourself.)

Who knew furniture could inspire such delicious combinations?
