NYC Trip





I just got back from New York City! Yes, at the last moment I was surprised with a trip to the big apple because I found out I was awarded first place in the Genuine Design Foundation Essay Competition. The awards were presented yesterday at the Haworth Showroom in conjunction with the grand opening of the NY11 Interior Design Exhibition. I went up yesterday from Washington and had a lovely stay at the Cornell Club, and then I drove back to Ithaca tonight. It was short but sweet, and was very grateful for the opportunity to represent the Cornell Interior Design Department at the event. I loved seeing the work of all 11 institutions represented at the Exhibition. If you're in NYC, it's worth a trip to the showroom to see it!
