Once again, we teamed up with New England Home Magazine to highlight the brightest emerging talent in the fields of architecture, home design products, interiors, furniture, and landscape design with the 5 Under 40 Awards.
The winners of this year's 5 Under 40 are:
Gregory H. Ehrman (Hutker Architects, Vineyard Haven, MA)
Pauline Curtiss (Patina, Lincoln, MA)
J. Brandon Jones (Glen Gate Company, Wilton, CT)
Jill Goldberg (Hudson Interior Designs, Boston, MA)
Alec Tesa (A. Tesa Architecture, Newport, RI)
The winners were chosen by an all-star committee of regional design leaders: Sally Weston of Sally Weston Associates; Jill Litner Kaplan of Jill Litner Kaplan Interiors; Eric Portnoy and Brent Refsland of Room 68; Michael Blier of Landworks Studio; and Kyle Hoepner, editor-in-chief ofNew England Home. They had their profiles appear in a special section of the September/October issue of New England Home Magazine, and were presented their awards on September 11, 2014, in our showroom at 333 Stuart Street in Boston.
We continue to be inspired each year by the amazing design choices of the 5 Under 40 winners. They are the people to watch, producing some of the most beautiful and innovative work available today.
Custom rugs were designed by the award winners with expert guidance from Jerry Arcari, and were produced by our talented rug weavers abroad. All five rugs were auctioned off by Jenny Johnson and Billy Costa at the awards ceremony, with all proceeds benefitting Barakat, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based charity that works to empower education in women and children in Pakistan and Afghanistan. This year, we raised $23,670 for Barakat.
Congratulations to all this year's winners! We look forward to seeing more of your work, and to next year's crop of 5 Under 40
