Cindy Rinfret is inducted into the New England Design Hall of Fame

Cindy Rinfret has won her fair share of awards over the years. In fact, in 2013 alone she has been recognized by the atHome AList Awards, won an IDA from Connecticut Cottages and Gardens, and is included in Mountain Living's Top Interior Designers and in the Luxe Interiors + Design Gold List. But it's not every day that one is honored with the lifetime achievement of being inducted into the New England Design Hall of Fame.

So in true Rinfret spirit, we made the most of it and had a great time celebrating this major landmark.

Team Rinfret came out to support Cindy and celebrate her induction. It was a blast to get dressed up - which for your typical Rinfret girl means black dress and blond hair!

Cindy gave an incredible acceptance speech to a sold out crowd of her peers at the State Room in Boston. It was an emotional moment and she pulled it off with grace and poise. We are so proud!

To add to the excitement of the evening, Rinfret's senior designer, Jill Weisberg won the grand prize of a Canyon Ranch gift certificate. As if there was not enough to celebrate already!

We are honored to have been recognized by the New England Design Hall of Fame and to be included among such an impressive group of inductees.

This is a major lifetime achievement for Cindy Rinfret but as far as we're concerned, it only marks the beginning of of a whole new chapter for Rinfret. Stay tuned and see what we do next!
