Bringing Down the House

The Winners of the PaperCity Dallas Design Awards with Dunhill Partners

BY // 10.26.15

“I want to be as cool as these people,” said the exuberant Bill Hutchinson from the stage of the first annual PaperCity Dallas Design Awards, with Dunhill Partners. Hutchinson, the newish owner of a large chunk of the Dallas Design District, announced the location of the Virgin Hotel that he and doppelgänger Sir Richard Branson have negotiated to open in 2018. Then it was on with the show: the presentation of 16 winning entries, selected from 262 entries in 16 categories. The judges? Eight high-profile, internationally recognized designers and architects, four of whom flew in to present the Tiffany & Co.-designed awards: NY designers Brian McCarthy, Timothy Whealon and Jessie Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier and Company. Rounding out the panel of judges were architect Joel Barkley of Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects, based in NY; designer and architect Robert Couturier, also based in NY; and L.A. designers Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Mary McDonald.

The evening began with pre-cocktails in the George Cameron Nash showroom, with debonair and entertaining Nash as host. More cocktails and the awards presentation were in Dallas Design District’s new — and we mean hours-old — event space, the large and loft-like Level 2, located just above ID Collection. All eyes were on Hutchinson as he welcomed 400 designers, architects and the design-savvy. Some were there to cheer on their compatriots; others were there to receive the iconic blue box from Tiffany & Co. regional director Michael Gresham. In the crowd: sisters Holly, Tess, and Rachel Hutchinson; Dunhill Partner’s Pam Dawson and Andy Crosland; designers Gonzalo Bueno, Doniphan Moore, Kelli Ford, Joanie Wyll, Emily Summers, Abby Smith, Andre Staffelbach, and Jo Heinz; architects Bentley Tibbs, Braxton Werner, Paul Field; and Joe Minton and Kevin Peavy, Barbara Buzzell, Bernadette Schaeffler, Brad Kelly, Karen Pulaski, Lisa Luby Ryan, John Phifer Marrs, Jim Williamson, Heather Wiese-Alexander, John Robert Clark, Joshua Clark, Robyn Siegel, Erin Mathews, Alice Cottrell, Empress Gilbert, Bon Affair’s Eric Dorton, Shay Geyer, Margaret Stafford, and Peggy Levinson.
