Haute Seat - The Judges Voted...

And we got First Place!

We had a great time at the NEWH Haute Seat event. It was an evening to celebrate the winners of the 2018 NEWH Rocky Mountain Student Scholarships, and to recognize the local hospitality design firms who have received the 2018 NEWH Rocky Mountain TopID honor - Johnson Nathan Strohe, Kimberly Timmons Interiors, and Rowland+Broughton Architecture & Urban Design. 

The event itself was a night-of competition where teams worked to create a custom light shade out of provided materials. All teams were limited by selective materials, and our team got creative thinking outside the box and drawing on natural resources from the outdoors. Our aim was to keep the original form of the framework we were given. We used natural materials and man-made materials evoking nature for a simple, elegant, natural design. Congrats to the other winning teams, taking home a People's Choice Award and a Best Use of Materials award.
