NYC: Panna – Mark and James Celebrate New York’s Design Hunting. To celebrate their apartment in the second issue of New York Design Hunting magazine, Mark Haldeman and James Aguiar invited friends to the Indian restaurant Panna.
Mark and James Celebrate. With great style, like everything they do, Mark and James decorated the table of the tiny kitschy restaurant with pink tablecloths, Big City Little Sweets Cakes Pops, especially made to match the color scheme of their apartment, elephants held the name cards which were all decorated with bling and a copy of the magazine was tied with Moroccan napkin wire holders.
