The first-ever Legacy Awards commenced on April 25 at the Westin Hotel in downtown Denver, where mountain design enthusiasts all gathered to celebrate the 25-year milestone for Mountain Living magazine, and to acknowledge the professionals who have contributed to the legacy of mountain home design.

The inaugural Legacy Award winners were selected from all over the Rocky Mountain West, and include architects, interior designers, landscape architects, furniture craftsmen and lighting designers who have been in the industry for 15-plus years. Their contributions have inspired, created and shaped residential design all over this region, and continue to enhance the quality of living in these areas. With that, Mountain Living felt it was only appropriate to pay homage to these professionals, without whom we wouldn’t have beautiful homes to feature.
