Designers from across the state were honored December 1 at the inaugural Georgia Design Awards Gala, produced by Atlanta magazine and Atlanta Magazine’s HOME. The event brought together all segments of the design community, including architecture, construction, and interior design, to recognize excellence and highlight outstanding projects.
The event, held at The Starling in Midtown Atlanta, was sponsored by the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC), AmericasMart Atlanta, Construction Resources, Circa Lighting, the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), The Starling, and Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove. Emcees were Sean McGinnis, president and publisher of Atlanta magazine and Atlanta Magazine’s HOME, and Betsy Riley, editor in chief of Atlanta magazine and editorial director of Atlanta Magazine’s HOME.
Entrants submitted a wide variety of projects ranging from single rooms and product installations to entire homes and public spaces. Entries were judged by an independent panel of design professionals from outside of Georgia. The judges selected gold, silver, and bronze winners in each of four categories: interiors, residential architecture, outdoor spaces, and contract design. One of the contest’s top awards, The Reader’s Choice Award, was selected by the readers of atlantamagazine.com.
