We’d like to say a word of thanks to Kendell Cronstrom and the team of judges for this year’s New York Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Awards – Bernd Goeckler, Shawn Henderson, Sandra Nunnerley, Tara Seawright, and Alan Tanksley — for selecting Glenn Gissler Design as the winner in both the Kitchen Design and Interior Design categories at last evenings awards ceremony.
Among the many design luminaries present at the awards was none other than John Saladino, who received the Innovator Award, presented by Mark Sacco of Sacco Carpets for his incredible contributions to the interior design industry. It was a very special moment for me sharing the stage with such a design legend.
I was accompanied for the evenings festivities by Wendy Silverstein of WS&A Public Relations, and my Senior Designer Craig Strulovitz, who coincidentally celebrates his 10 year anniversary working at my firm this week. In many ways these prestigious awards are due in part to him – thank you Craig! — for your commitment to excellence in executing our work.
And once again thank you to everyone at NYC&G — being recognized by such an important shelter publications is certainly one of the highlights of my year!
We are both grateful and honored to be among the finalists nominated in 2 categories in this years NYC&G Innovation in Design Awards — with the winners being announced at a gala dinner on Wednesday September 16th, at 583 Park Avenue in New York.
Glenn Gissler Design has been recognized in the Kitchen Design Category for this spacious and stylishly functional kitchen within a project we completed on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. (To see the entire project, follow this link.)
And in the Interior Design category we’ve been recognized for this grand-scaled 11 room apartment in a building designed in 1923 by architect Mott B. Schmidt on Manhattan’s Upper East Side off Park Avenue. (To see this entire project, follow this link.)
No matter the outcome, being recognized as a finalist in 2 categories at this years awards is truly an honor — and we’d like to wish continued success to all our friends and colleagues who were recognized this year. Best of luck to us all!
We are thrilled to be have been included as a finalist in Garden Design by this distinguished group of judges: Alexa Hampton, Amy Lau, Bunny Williams, Elaine Griffin, Kerry Delrose, Liz O’Brien, and Ralph Pucci.
I am looking forward to attending the Awards Ceremony September 17 at the Harvard Club (perhaps I’ll see you there!)
