IIDA New York's 20th Annual IIDA Leaders Breakfast

5.4.09 | IIDA New York's 20th Annual IIDA Leaders Breakfast packed New York's interior design community into Gotham Hall in NYC last week. It was John Lijewski and Hilda Longinotti's tenth year as co-chairs of the event, and the IIDA NY members and the contract community came in droves, even for the 7:30 AM call time. It was apparent that they were there to celebrate 20 successful years of the event, enjoy the bagel and lox, take in the speakers lined up for the morning and mostly to enjoy each other's close (very close) company.

Hilda in Color

4.27.09 | Last week we covered Hilda Longinotti's retirement event at the Herman Miller NYC National Design Center. (officeinsight 4.20.09, Hilda, Hilda: Wherefore are thou Hilda?) The gracious Ms. Longinotti phoned us last week to let us know that she had taken notice of our modest efforts. Unfortunately, as we were preparing the article, our universal memory card reader corrupted our files, making it impossible to open them. We solved the problem mid-week, and recovered some of the images.

NY 11 2009 Student Exhibition Features Multi-Disciplinary Panel

3.23.09 | Ruth Lynford is indefatigable. One of a limited number of women architects of her age, Ms. Lynford has led the fight for the recognition of the interior design profession in the State of New York. With the present turmoil in interior design legislation, we sometimes forget that for too long, and extending into the 21st century, this profession has been treated as the butt of jokes of some commentators who seem to believe that the crafting of where they spend most of their time indoors should be left to anyone who thinks they can make a living at it, or enjoys it as a fun hobby.

Global: Spring Fling NY

3.23.09 | Do you know Global? Probably not, and it is not that easy to know. It's an interesting mix of business relationships and methods of doing business that will provide some interesting lessons as we move forward. For now, know that Global considers itself the fifth largest contract furniture manufacturer in North America. I'm not sure how this sorts out, but a good place to start is with Sol Feldberg, who started the company in 1966 in Toronto.
