Every fall, the prestigious NYC&G (New York Cottages and Gardens magazine) presents its Innovation Design Awards. This year two NoMad interior designers, who happen to be friends, have each been nominated for two awards.
Barry Goralnick and Glenn Gissler are seasoned designers who were educated at the finest design schools in the country, have worked with many famous clients, and are featured regularly in architectural and interior design publications.
Barry’s nominations are for Product Design and Garden Design. Barry designs a lighting collection for Visual Comfort, has a furniture collection at Ferrell + Mittman, and an extensive collection of rugs and carpets custom-designed and exclusively available at Stark Carpet. His nomination for product design is for his beautiful “Max Dylan” sofa shown below. It includes a hidden USB and power port for the ultimate in discreet power, ultra-reinforced tight-back and arms support extra cocktail perch seating and a unique-open beveled leg in rose gold, brass or steel.

Glenn’s nominations are for innovation in Kitchen Design and Interior Design. The kitchen in an Upper West Side apartment overlooking Central Park, was designed for a family with four children and many pets. Glenn notes: “We were able to create a very spacious kitchen with three large windows overlooking the park, a table for eight and an island that could seat four, the cabinet faces are porcelain enamel over steel with a polished steel frame (like a La Cornue Range), indestructible high-tech porcelain floors, honed granite counters and a backsplash made of glass tiles. Overall the palette and materials are rich, earthy and understated.”
A home for an Upper East Side family won Glenn the second nomination for Interior Design. Glenn told us that, in initial conversations with the client, they requested public spaces that evoke a 1940’s French aesthetic: “I used a complex application of elements from 20th century aesthetic periods to create a light, sophisticated home.”
