Interior Design’s annual Hall of Fame ceremony will not be held at the Waldorf Astoria, where the event has unfolded for the last 32 years. This season, the event is relocating to the glass-enclosed River Pavilion at Javits Center.

The awards program will honor the magazine’s 85th birthday, as well as the 100th birthday of Javits Center architect I.M. Pei. The Waldorf is undergoing a three-year-long renovation.

The Hall of Fame will be held November 30, with a cocktail reception in a custom Sunbrella and Sunbrella Contract entry hall area designed by Tsao & McKown.

“The alchemy of finding a modern setting designed by a true icon on the occasion of his 100th anniversary was irresistible!” said Cindy Allen, editor in chief of Interior Design. “Guests will see a whole new side of the building: one of light, scale, and extraordinary views of the Hudson River.”
