ICFF celebrates another year of exceptional work in the field of interior design across all disciplines at the 43rd Annual Interiors Awards.
On the Saturday night of this year’s New York Design Week, some of the greatest talents in the industry gathered atop a building in the Flatiron district to celebrate the extraordinary work of their peers. The Penthouse at NeueHouse Madison Square set the scene with an Instagram-worthy spread of appetizers, great views, chilly drinks, moody lighting, and even the twinkle of a disco ball rotating overhead. But the star of the show was the collection of work up for one of this year’s Interiors Awards.
The Interiors Awards and distinguished Designer of the Year recognition have both launched and supported the careers of some of the world’s most incredible designers. An opportunity for designers across the world to have their work recognized, the awards span 12 categories: Wellness/Sustainable, Bar/Restaurant, Education, Healthcare, Hotel, Office, Adaptive Reuse/Historic Renovation, Retail, Civic/Public, Residential, Other, and Student.
An esteemed jury of design leaders selected this year’s finalists—and winners. Huxley Hogeboom, the executive vice president of design and development at Left Lane Development, along with Sarah Klymson, the global vice president of product & brand development for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, and Kia Weatherspoon, the president of Determined by Design and last year’s Designer of the Year, considered the nearly 300 projects submitted to this year’s awards.

We asked past Designers of the Year to nominate who they would suggest for this year’s coveted award, and one name stood out: Morris Adjmi.
This year’s honoree builds memorable spaces that are timeless, charmful, and at one with their locations. He supports artists by integrating art with architecture. He plays with unexpected materials inside and out. He’s a mentor to many. And an inspiration to us.
