The jury noted the 2019 entries are characterized by use of textured materials, and a shift towards brighter spaces flooded with natural light.
“We saw a lot of 1970s Italian-style design this year – arches, circles and terrazzo,” said the jury. “It has influences of mid-century design but also of the elegant luxury of Italian villas.”
The 2019 awards will be announced during a celebration attended by architects, interior designers and their hospitality clients.
