Our Master of Ceremonies:
Tyler Wisler 
"Great design is what you make of it; what makes you happy... I'm just here to help steer you in the right direction, open your eyes to a world of sometimes unrecognized beauty, embrace creative possibilities, all while having a good time implementing it. That's great design!"  

Our Product Design Honoree:

Michele Quan:  MQuan Studio, Ceramic Artist 
"Sometimes when you look at the sky, it can cut straight to the bone and this moment, in the midst of it all, is what I attempt to convey. My hope is that my work both serve as objects of contemplation to inspire reverence and as a source of encouragement and refuge"

Our Interior Design Honorees:


Tamara Eaton: Tamara Eaton Design
"Successful design isn't just about aesthetics; it's also about creating a comfortable environment that can withstand the test of time."
Samantha Goldman and Samantha Polkow:  Handin  Browne
Handin Browne is inspired by clean, contemporary spaces that still feel inviting. The firm works closely with clients to mix streamlined interior and architectural elements with traditional shapes and collected pieces.  
They often focus on space and flow, while neutral tones, natural materials and straight lines are a common thread in all projects. 
Ashley Darryl:  Ashley Darryl Interiors
Ashley's diamonds in the rough are vintage pieces from eras past. Ashley loves mixing antiques with classic and contemporary pieces to create an eclectic look.  According to one client, "Ashley's design vision is immaculate. She comes up with ways to mix textures and patterns that result in magazine ready spaces."
