The Projects That Push Design Forward in the City

BY PaperCity Dallas // 12.15.21

The annual Dallas-Fort Worth PaperCity Design Awards garnered more than 200 entries in 18 categories with 1,000 images of projects downloaded into digital libraries for our judges: Charlotte Moss, NYC; Allison Caccoma, San Francisco; Lance Duckett Scott, partner David Kleinberg Design Associates, NYC; Steve Raike, partner Lake | Flato Architects, San Antonio; and Dara Caponigro, creative director Schumacher, NYC.

The PaperCity Design Awards celebration was the finale to Texas Design Week Dallas, a jam-packed five days of salon talks, book signings, cocktails, and product launches. The evening began with a cocktail celebration  followed by the Awards presentation at Virgin Hotels Dallas, with master of ceremonies Alessandra Branca. Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas were honored with the Dallas Design District Award. Dunhill Partners president Andy Crosland presented the Baccarat crystal obelisk to Nazira Handal, director of special events and corporate sponsorships for Kips Bay.

The winning projects and runners-up will be published in a special portfolio in the January/February 2022 Decoration + Art issue of PaperCity Dallas.

Thank you to our PaperCity Design Awards Sponsors: Dunhill Partners and Dallas Design District, along with New Orleans Auction Galleries, Monogram Luxury Appliances, OKA, Baccarat, and Virgin Hotels Dallas.

There are projects that stand alone in their scope and service to the Dallas design community. The annual Dallas Design District Award honors an individual, foundation, or company that has made a difference and galvanized the Dallas design community. The 2021 Baccarat obelisk Award goes to Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas.

For 48 years, the internationally recognized Kips Bay Decorator Show House has invited celebrated designers to transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. This event began in 1973, when several dedicated supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Decorator Show House to raise critical funds for much-needed after-school and enrichment programs for New York City children.

Over the course of four decades, this project has grown into a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts and is renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world and launching design careers. Following the success of the Palm Beach Show House created four years ago, Kips Bay put Dallas on the world design map with the opening of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas in 2020. The 2020 and 2021 Dallas Show Houses attracted visitors from across the U.S. It’s immeasurable what Kips Bay has brought to the Dallas design community — and to the city as a whole.

Andy Crosland, president of Dunhill Partners, presented the Award to Nazira Handal, Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club director of special events and corporate sponsorships. The design world knows Nazira as the nexus of the Show House. For 11 years, Handal has orchestrated, nurtured, and shepherded the Kips Bay Show Houses and is the axis around which the designers and the hundreds of vendors pivot. Congratulations to Handal and Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.

Judges’ Remarks:

“A room with thoughtful divisions of space that will wear well over time and be a great escape hatch day or night. Tonal and serene.” — Charlotte Moss

“I love the sculptural forms in this room — it’s a tactile delight from the rugs to the chair fabric. The spareness has a sensuality that keeps the room from feeling cold.” — Dara Caponigro, F. Schumacher

Firm: Urbanology Designs

Lead Designer: Ginger Curtis

Judge’s Remark:

A restrained material palette that has been assembled and applied with great care to the details makes this kitchen feel warm and inviting yet modern and minimal. I appreciate how the brass hardware accentuates the warmth of the wood and ties together the black, white, and wood elements — very subtle but very effective. Equally effective is the tile selection on the backsplash — subtle texture and detailing that you will really appreciate in person.” — Steve Raike, Lake | Flato

Firm: Alexis Pearl Design

Lead Designer: Alexis Pearl

Judges’ Remarks:

“The subtle yin and yang of this dining room is very successful. While the architecture is relatively traditional, it’s countered with an artful wallpaper, cool modern furnishings, and a general spare sensibility that make the room feel utterly of the moment. The ceiling fixtures are somewhere in between and bring the whole room together.” — Dara Caponigro, F. Schumacher

“Wonderful room! The shapes and materials sing yet the room is calm and sophisticated. I would be happy to dine here!” — Allison Caccoma

Firm: Chad Dorsey Design

Lead Designers: Chad Dorsey and Luis Olivares

Judge’s Remark:

“From inspiration to execution, this room is a winner. The dark wine-like glossy walls are tempered by a light wooden floor; bar surfaces of marble and brass add light and reflection; and the textures of hide and leather warm the mix. Glamorous, personal and inviting. When can I come for drinks?” — Charlotte Moss

It will be a project that garners a lot of interest over the next few years as employers evaluate how to retain and attract talent.” — Steve Raike, Lake | Flato

Firm: From the Ground Up

Lead Landscape Designer: Dan Houchard

Judge’s Remark:

“Beautiful integration of elements, fountain, pool. Levels add dimension, and the fountain creates sound. Hardscape and plantings are well balanced, and I love how the house embraces all. Great marriage of house and garden. Choice of plants, their location, and volume are restrained and, at the same time, feel lush and not overly wrought. This is a thoughtful, well-executed design.” — Charlotte Moss
