Design Centre Stories


After much deliberation, the winner – judged by Gabby Deeming, decoration director of House & Garden, and Martina Mondadori Sartogo, editor of Cabana – was de Le Cuona’s homage to two great Impressionist masterpieces: ‘Woman with a Parasol’ by Claude Monet and ‘Dancers in Blue’ by Edgar Degas. Costumes from the two paintings were brought to life with de Le Cuona’s fabrics, showing off the textiles’ beautiful flow. Bernie de Le Cuona (pictured below) picked up her award with Gabby, Martina and members of the showroom team.

There were three Highly Commended awards: Loewe/Morris and Co’s Capsule Collection at Style Library; Colony’s collaboration with Lambart & Browne’s Freddy van Zevenbergen; and Vaughan’s homage to Diana Vreeland.
