It’s exciting to see fourteen newcomers debut on this year’s AD100 list. In truth, it is challenging to make space for fresh names: 100 is a very restrictive number when you consider that the list is international in scope and comprises interior decorators, architects, and a few landscape designers. (We firmly believe that the outside is just as important as the inside!) The spots are coveted by those in the industry, and the AD staff really agonizes over how to include all of the talents we believe in. Close readers of the magazine will recognize many of the newbies—they are hardly green, and most have already had their work featured in our pages. In fact, this month we highlight projects by two fresh inductees: an airy, pretty Paris apartment created by French designer Isabelle Stanislas, who has been chosen to revamp three state rooms at the Élysée Palace, and a charming hotel in New Orleans conjured by the Brooklyn-based trio known as ASH NYC.
