I had so much fun last night tweeting live from 2012 Innovation in Design Awards ceremony. In its 6th edition this year, 2012 IDAS honored the hugely talented Alexa Hampton who was the recipient of the Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Innovator Award. I was dying to show you the photo of the beautiful Alexa accepting the award but that’s when my iPhone failed me (am I the only one having problems with iPhone battery???).
Instead I am showing you beautiful pieces designed by Alexa Hampton for Hickory, Circa Lighting and Stark. Enjoy!
Above is a vignette designed for the event by a good friend and a brilliant stylist Elaine McCleary. Atop Alexa Hampton’s chest for Hickory there are floral arrangements by Diane James Home, chocolates by Lindt and champagne by Nicolas Feuillatte.
Sofa, tables and chairs by Alexa Hampton for Hickory, carpet by Alexa Hampton by Stark, accessories by Lillian August. Pretty!
This fireplace for Chesney’s is another Alexa Hampton design. Flanked by Alexa’s sconces for Circa Lighting. Classic!
Love this idea! Votives wrapped in Alexa Hampton trim tape for Kravet.
Gorgeous floral centerpieces by Diane James Home.
And the 2012 Innovator Award goes to… Alexa Hampton! Trophy by Juliska.
