The slate of winners for 2016 was selected by a committee of professionals representing diverse facets of the New England design community, including Patrick Hickox of Hickox Williams Architects in Boston, Kristin Paton of Kristin Paton Interiors and Kristin Paton Home in Cambridge, Mass., and Julie Moir Messervy of Julie Moir Messervy Design Studio, a landscape firm in Saxtons River, Vt.

Each winner will design a custom rug to be handwoven in the Nepal-based workshops of presenting sponsor Landry & Arcari Rugs and Carpeting, creating a direct connection between designer and weaver. The completed rugs will be auctioned off at the September 8 celebration honoring the winners, with proceeds to benefit the Cambridge-based charity, Barakat.
