Without question, there are few individuals who have done more to raise the profile of design in people’s everyday lives than Martha Stewart. It is rare to see a business leader who so successfully integrates design strategy into her company’s business strategy. She deserves every design award available–and perhaps it is all these awards that she plans to store in the 3,200 square foot storage building planned for her Bedford estate that was recently approved by the town council. Congratulations, Martha!
From her own blog, The Martha Blog:
“I am so proud and happy to report that I recently received an honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts from the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID). Many extraordinary designers have passed through this prestigious school’s doors and I was so thrilled to be notified that I was chosen, along with three other distinguished individuals, as a recipient of an honorary degree at NYSID’s ninety-fifth commencement exercises, recognizing my influence and contributions to the word of entertaining and style.”
