The Winning Design - Rion Stassi's Chandelier

Last Thursday, the Basil Hayden Tastemakers Design Chicago competition culminated in a combination final judging session, winner naming and cocktail party. Guests gathered at the event held at the Crimson Lounge to check out the top three entries and cast a vote. Hosted by Nate Berkus, the party was busy, busy, busy...

The three designs that made it to this final round were a chandelier by Rion Stassi, a chair by Sarah Tranum and a table by Bryan Lump. They were all displayed at the event for voting, with the chandelier winning the $10,000 top prize (complete with the classic "big check"! - see below).
