Whether you’re an industry professional or a design enthusiast looking for inspiration, the 2012 Architectural Digest Home Design Show—a four-day event featuring the best in home design from more than 400 brands—has something for you.

This year’s event features an extensive kitchen and bath area as well as an expanded MADE section, where individual artisans display collectible, handcrafted objects and furniture. This year Linder is exhibiting a new abstract painting with monochromatic tones in purple to match the display design.

The Architectural Digest Design Show is always packed with designers, architects, and interior decorators. Linder has exhibited in this show since 2007.

Linder received several awards this year and his work was given high accolades during the exhibition.

Here is a view of the painting in the background of the display.

This is the final display Linder exhibited his work in.

The painting titled beyond the hills was sold during the show to a collector in New York City.

Dining by Design, a special exhibition that raises money for Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA), features more than 40 awe-inspiring tabletop installations.

DIFFA hosted a benefit dinner in the space on Monday evening, and Ralph Lauren chief retail creative officer Alfredo Paredes—whose home is featured on the cover of *AD’*s April issue—will be honored.

There were many International designers featured in the show.

There were plenty of smiles and creative people to bump into during the DIFFA dinner.

The bar was sponsored by Effen Vodka.

There was plenty of Celebrity style.

And good friends to enjoy the night with.
