About the Event: The black-tie event begins with a cocktail reception that fills all three Grand Ballroom Salons. A special VIP reception is held additionally with invited guests ranging from Hall of Fame members, benefactors, editors, members of the press, and diamond, platinum and gold sponsors. Dinner, the awards ceremony, and after-party follow the reception. Mark Strauss, president, Interior Design Media, and Cindy Allen, editor in chief, Interior Design, host the awards ceremony. An inspirational documentary of each of the inductees is shown and inductees are present to accept their awards. It is the Academy Awards of the interior design industry.
The Hall of Fame was established in 1985 by Interior Design to recognize the individuals who have made significant contributions to the growth and prominence of the design industry. Previous Hall of Fame inductees include legendary figures such as: Antonio Citterio, Clodagh, Thiery W. Despont, Frank Gehry, Albert Hadley, Andree Putman, David Rockwell, Lauren Rottet, Philippe Starck, and Robert A.M. Stern, to name a few. A venerable "Who's Who" of the top style makers come to honor the new inductees, who are selected from a nomination body of previous Hall of Fame members.
