Ellie Cullman
Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award
Ellie Cullman founded Cullman & Kravis over
30 years ago. Known for layered, dynamic
interiors, luxurious finishes, and exquisite
details, the firm’s work embraces a “modern
traditional” aesthetic. This fresh approach is
contemporary, yet respects the 30-year track
record of the company’s passion for fine art
and antiques. In addition to its interior design
practice, Cullman & Kravis recently launched
its Elliehome Furniture Collection through The
New Traditionalist, and a fabric collection with
Holland & Sherry. Ellie has consistently been included on the coveted AD 100 list
of the world’s best interior designers and architects since 2000. She was named
one of Architectural Digest’s Deans of American Design in 2005, and received the
D&D’s Star of Design Award in 2009. She is the co-author with Tracey Pruzan of
Decorating Master Class: The Cullman Kravis Way (Harry Abrams, 2008), and The
Detailed Interior: Decorating Up Close with Cullman & Kravis (Monacelli, 2013).
The Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award is given to individuals who have
made contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of design.
Ellie Cullman joins Mario Buatta (2011), Jack Lenor Larsen (2012), Geoffrey
Bradfield (2013), Mariette Himes Gomez (2014), John Rosselli (2015), and
Bunny Williams (2015) as Hadley Award laureates.

members of Jim’s family. Philanthropy has always been an important part of the
New York Design Center’s history. Both Jim Druckman and the New York Design
Center have long term involvements with major industry related charities. Jim

With Gratitude
The New York School of Interior Design thanks
Lalique for the generous contribution of
Avallon Vases awarded to Ellie Cullman and
Deborah Nevins.
The Avallon Vase is an original René Lalique
design from 1927. It returned to production
in 2010, celebrating the 150th anniversary of
Lalique’s birth in 1860. The design’s vine creates
a rhythm throughout the composition where
birds indulge in an abundance of sweet grapes.
From the original work of founder René
Lalique to the iconic brand of today, Lalique has endured
for over a century as the ultimate symbol of French luxury.
Today, Lalique has transformed into a full lifestyle brand,
offering collections across five categories: interior design,
decorative objects, jewelry, art, and fragrance.
NYSID Centennial Medal
The New York School of Interior Design is
grateful to Michele Oka Doner who designed
this new medal in recognition of the College’s
Centennial. Celebrating the College’s first 100
years and its vitality today while looking
forward to a brilliant future, this medallion in
sterling silver presents an emerging growth
form, a kind of tree of life, simultaneously
representing the growth of knowledge and
the organic nature of design.
Michele Oka Doner is an internationally renowned artist whose
work encompasses sculpture, furniture, jewelry, public art,
functional objects, video as well as costume and set design.
Her work is fueled by lifelong study and appreciation of the natural
world from which she derives her formal vocabulary. Michele Oka
Doner is a member of the NYSID Advisory Board.
Green Design Medal
The New York School of Interior Design is grateful
to Michael Graves for designing the Green Design
Medal. Michael was a member of the NYSID Advisory
Board and its Master of Professional Studies in
Healthcare Interior Design Program Advisory Board.

New York School of Interior Design is a private, nonprofit college focused
exclusively on interior design. The college offers certificate, undergraduate,
and graduate programs for students at all stages of their careers—whether
they’re just becoming familiar with the discipline, considering a career
change, or looking to deepen knowledge in a particular area. We have
more than 600 students studying residential and commercial interior
design, with specialties in sustainable design, lighting, and healthcare
interiors. Because of our small class size and sharp focus, our students
receive a great deal of personal attention from our dedicated faculty,
and they go on to practice at the highest levels of the profession.
Founded in 1916, New York School of Interior Design has been leading the
study of interior design for a century. We’ve trained the designers whose
work defines interior design today, and, by rigorously preparing students for
professional success, we’re shaping the future of the entire field. We are ranked
one of the top five interior design schools in the U.S. by Design Intelligence.
