Oh what a night! What honorees!  What atmosphere!  The LongHouse Winter Benefit was a smashing success and truly a feel good event.  The luminaries in the fields of design, art and architecture came to honor two extraordinary individuals:  Interior Design editor-in-chief Cindy Allen and furniture designer extraordinaire Joseph Walsh.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and conversation at the stunning Hearst Tower, followed by award presentations to the honorees.  The LongHouse Awards were created by Marc Leuthold.  

The evening's dinner was held at the stately headquarters of the American Irish Historical Society, a Beaux-Arts style mansion built in 1901. 

Enjoy these photos from this memorable evening to honor two of design's finest, to benefit LongHouse.
