HD Talks

And the Winners Are …

Posted by on June 9, 2016 in Events

Last night, we hosted our 12th annual HD Awards at Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York. Every year I say this, and it still remains true: This is hospitality’s Oscars! We changed things up this year and announced the winners at the event. And trust me, it was hard to keep that secret for the past few months.

The moment may seem fleeting to some, over in just a few hours, but we’ve been working on these awards since last December, and our winners and finalists much longer than that. It’s truly a night when we get to see what our industry is capable of and celebrate what makes it so unique, innovative, and interesting. It’s inspiring to see the caliber of design and level of thoughtfulness in both our products and projects finalists and winners.

But before we get to our winners, a bold, all-caps, italicized CONGRATULATIONS to our Best in Show honorees. For products, Mercury from Preciosa took top honors. And the Treehouse Suite at Playa Viva in Juluchuca, Mexico crafted by Deture Culsign, Architecture & Interiors, was named the Best in Show for projects. Both more than deserving!
