The New England Design Hall of Fame

New England Home magazine will be hosting a gala celebrating the 2007 inductees to the New England Design Hall of Fame.

This year's inductees, individuals that have had a significant career in residential architects and interior design in New Englad, include Richard Bertman; Lee Bierly; Christopher Drake; Celeste Cooper; Jeremiah Eck; Richard FitzGerald; Graham Gund; William Hodgins; James Volney Righter; and, Charles Spada.

The New England Design Hall of Fame is located in the courtyard of the Boston Design Center; the courtyard was redesigned specifically for the Hall of Fame. The actual induction ceremony happened last month. Each inductee had a birch tree planted along with a plaque and their signature in mortar in the Courtyard. The goal is to eventually have a grove of trees that represent the quality of New England architecture and design.

The New England Design Hall of Fame celebration gala will be "a virtual who’s who of the local residential architecture and interior design community." It will be held Wednesday, November 7 at the State Room. Tickets are still available; a portion of the ticket sales goes to the New England Design Hall of Fame Scholarship fund at the Boston Architectural College.

Hey Gradon, are you going? I got lucky and am sitting at the IFDA table (I am going to be a board member next year).
