Toronto-based Flora Di Menna Designs was the belle of the ball at the 22nd annual International Property Awards in London, England after winning the Best International Interior Design Private Residence category for the 65 Westwood Lane estate in the suburbs of Toronto.
“Winning this award has been a lifetime in the making,” says FDM Designs president and principal designer Flora Di Menna. “It just reinforces all the hard work and the uncompromising standard of excellence that we bring to every project we take on.”
Held at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, over 2,000 companies from 100 different countries across Asia, Africa, Arabia, the Americas and Europe submitted an estimated $30 billion (US) worth of projects for this year’s competition.
FDM Designs recently won three awards during the America’s stage of the International Property Awards this fall for the General Electric Global Headquarters (Best Office Interior), Eagles Nest Golf Club (Best Leisure Interior) and the aforementioned Westwood Lane Estate Residence (Best Private Residence Interior). By winning the prestigious award at the international level, FDM Designs has not only staked its claim as the World’s Best, but has also put Canada back on the map in the interior design world.
“There are thousands of amazing designers out there, but this just proves that what’s happening in Canada can’t be ignored,” says Di Menna. “It’s an absolute honour to represent my country on the international stage and we couldn’t be more proud to receive this recognition.”
