HOUSE BEAUTIFUL NEXT WAVE LUNCHEON

House Beautiful magazine hosted its annual Next Wave Luncheon at Hearst Tower in New York City on Thursday, February 25. The magazine celebrated 10 up-and-coming interior designers: Caleb Anderson, Lindsey Lane, Robin Henry, Shaun Smith, Frank Bostelman, Stephanie Sabbe, Amy Berry, Dan Fink, Rivers Spencer, and Antonino Buzzetta – all of whom have been featured in House Beautiful in the past year. The event was lead by House Beautiful editor-in-chief Sophie Donelson, who sat down for a special Q&A with legendary designer Jamie Drake to discuss his own career and principles of design. Drake spoke about his upcoming merge with rising star Caleb Anderson (one of this year’s Next Wave honorees), the design community, and his thoughts about the future of the industry. 

Next Wave spotlights rising talents in the next generation of designers, and this new crop of Next Wavers joins the ranks of previous honorees including Nate Berkus, Ruthie Sommers and Laura Kirar.
