Happy Sukkot!

It’s Sukkot, the Jewish holiday celebrating the fall harvest season, which involves constructing a temporary sukkah, as a place to gather, eat, and celebrate.  Currently 12 competition winning sukkahs are on display in Union Square, New York – all created by young architects. I love it! 

Sukkot are traditionally formed of sticks, leaves, and twine but these are far more modern and creative! As it is by far the most interior-design oriented of all the Jewish holidays I could not miss it!

Organic and so beautiful, “Gathering,” by Dale Suttle, So Sugita & Ginna Nguyen was by far my favorite!
Enjoy the New York Times article . . .
