Since 2010, Landry & Arcari has teamed up with New England Home Magazine each year to highlight the hottest emerging talent of residential design in New England. The winners of 5 Under 40 are forerunners in their fields, turning heads with their design work in the realm of interiors, architecture, landscape, furniture, home design products, and accessories. Winners are celebratedwith recognition in two issues of New England Home Magazine, a special reception, and a unique opportunity to design their own custom rug.
Over the course of six months, Landry & Arcari brings each winner’s rug design into reality via our talented rug weavers abroad. The completed rugs are then auctioned off at the 5 Under 40 Awards ceremony in September. All proceeds from the auction benefit Barakat, a Cambridge, Massachusetts based charity that works to empower education in women and children in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
We must say that here at Landry & Arcari, we continue to be inspired each year by the design choices of the 5 Under 40 Winners. As nominations for the 2014 awards close this evening, we thought it would be a good time to take a look back at last year’s talented winners and designs.
