The festivities kick into high gear tonight with the Academy Awards of Design (aka Interior Design Hall of Fame) in New York and the start of Design Miami/ in Florida.

The President may be in NYC, but the talented Mark Strauss and Cindy Allen are getting ours (and the 1400 others in attendance) undivided attention tonight.  In a few hours, we are headed to the Waldorf Astoria to celebrate this year’s inductees: Patricia Urquiola, David Kleinberg, Nada Andric and George Beylerian. They join a list of past luminaries including Philippe Starck, Frank Ghery, and Antonio Citterio, to name a few. Proceeds from the event are awarded to not-for-profit organizations supporting the design industry.

Down south, our friends at adroyt, Avant Gallery, Planar, 42Below and Surface are celebrating the opening of PICTURES + FURNITURE featuring the work of designers Chad Jensen, Philip Michael Wolfson and Pryor Calloway. The event is being held at the Avant Gallery from 6-11PM. The evening’s opening reception will be celebrated in tandem with a dedicated TwitSalon from 6-7PM, conducted by Adroyt.
