Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Sep 14, 2017 - New York Spaces, a MOD Media luxury interior design magazine, celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Top 50 Designers on Sept. 12. The Top 50 list has been curated by the editors of New York Spaces, led by Editorial Director Jason Kontos, and appears in this month’s issue of the magazine. In order to be considered in the year-long search for the Top 50, designers must be an established business, based in the NY metropolitan area, and either a renowned and long-respected organization or a new uncovered talent. The invite-only Top 50 Designers celebration was held at a dramatic space that rarely hosts events, Ralph Pucci International, the luxurious showroom of the distinguished international luxury furniture, lighting and mannequin company. The exclusive party was the must-attend event of the season for the design industry’s elite.
New York Spaces publisher Lisa Ben-Isvy comments: “We are proud to honor New York Spaces‘ 2017 Top 50 Designers in the magazine and across all digital platforms. The Top 50 event delivers our advertisers the strongest mix of upscale consumers and high-end interior designers in New York. It was lovely to celebrate the industry’s talent and network with our friends and peers at what has become a highly anticipated annual event to kick off the design season. We are also celebrating our biggest issue ever produced in the history of the magazine — quite a milestone!”
New York Spaces Editorial Director Jason Kontos notes: “For the tenth year, we sorted through a plethora of the best architects and designers in the New York Metro area to bestow our Top 50 honor. These extraordinary talents bring color, innovation, comfort and artistry to the environments we inhabit, enabling our homes to be a personal sanctuary for self-reflection and individual expression. The industry is constantly evolving, and there are some new stars on the list this year as well as long-standing honorees. We are thrilled to have them as part of the New York Spaces family.”
Ralph Pucci International, Ralph Pucci says, “It is an honor to collaborate with New York Spaces for the 10th anniversary Top 50 Designers event. Jason has been a leader and trailblazer of new ideas for many years, always searching and welcoming new talent and names to keep the issue fresh. I have showrooms in LA and Miami, too, but New York City is still recognized globally as the frontrunner of the design world, so it is both very comforting and exciting to welcome the Top 50 NYC designers to my showroom.”
Throughout the event, Top 50 designers were interviewed by celebrity correspondent Amber Milt to discuss being recognized on the list and their professional journey. Guests were served hors d’oeuvres and champagne catered by Chef Franco Vitella and premium cocktails by VDKA6100.
A special thank you to Ralph Pucci International for hosting the event and to our sponsors Cambria, Benjamin Moore CENTURY and Halstead Real Estate.
