My thanks to the winning designers who attended the awards ceremony—given all the weather-related tumult New York experienced over the past couple of weeks, their efforts to be on hand were much appreciated.

We’ll provide full coverage of all the above winners in the January+February 2013 issue of Boutique Design, which will also mark the debut of our expanded and newly redesigned print edition. How’s that for a double treat to start the New Year?
