T h e e a g e r l y a n t i c i p a t e d 2021 PaperCity Design Awards, held at Virgin H o t e l s Dallas, was the culmination of Texas Design Week Dallas and sponsored by Dallas Design District, Dunhill Partners, along with New Orleans Auction Galleries, Monogram Luxury Appliances, OKA, Baccarat, and Virgin Hotels Dallas. Designer Alessandra Branca, in from Chicago, was this year's master of ceremonies. Her best accessory is her mellifluous Italian accent and she commanded the stage in a filled-to-capacity ballroom, moving the awards show at a fast clip. But before the presentation of winning projects, this year's Dallas Design District Award honoring projects that stand alone in their scope and service to the Dallas design community, was awarded to Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas, which has galvanized the design community. Kips Bay's Nazira Handal was presented the Baccarat obelisk by Andy Crosland, president, Dunhill Partners. As the awards moved on to the winning projects in 18 categories, this year's judges were thanked: Charlotte Moss, NYC; Dara Caponigro, director F. Schumacher, NYC; Allison Caccoma, San Francisco; Lance Duckett Scott, partner David Kleinberg Design Associates, NYC; architect Steve Raike, partner Lake | Flato, San Antonio. Designer Joshua Rice seemed to be the movie Moonlight in terms of sweeping many categories: He was honored with four winning projects — and a forest of Baccarat crystal obelisks. Branca, with a wink, commented, "Don›t bother sitting back down, Joshua.» Additional winners were Ibañez Shaw Architecture, Shipley A r c h i t e c t s , U r b a n o l o g y Designs, Laura Lee Clark Interior Design, Alexis Pearl Design, Chad Dorsey Design, Marc McCollom Architect, 5G Studio Collaborative, Gensler, From the Ground Up, Cush Living, Reng Lighting by Brendan Bass and Krane Home.
