This year’s LEGENDS windows – created by 61 designers on the theme of “Where Muses Dwell” – brought to life the people, places, eras, and objects that inspire the participating designers.
LCDQ hosted a contest sponsored by Benjamin Moore and asked the public, the magazine editors attending LEGENDS 2015, and LEGENDS ambassadors to vote for their favorite window design.
The Editors’ Choice award went to Ken Fulk for his window at Therien. His 3D window design was inspired by his muse, The Movie Inside My Mind. “If you could peer into the brain of an artist, it would be a maelstrom of ideas, images, colors, and quotes,” says Fulk. “I have been inspired by movies my entire life – I seem to have an imaginary reel going on in my head and whenever I start a new project, I can see the ‘movie’ of it in my head before anything else comes together. This swirling tornado represents that creative process; it features clips from some of my favorite directors along with equally dramatic vintage objects.”
In the Bloggers’ Choice category, Sam Allen’s window at Hollyhock was the winner. His muse, Bali, came to life with bright splashes of orange and blue, varied patterns, and Christopher Spitzmiller accents. Remarks Allen, “When I think of Bali, I mostly think of the color blue and all the incredible shades that the sky and water reflects. Like most islands, Bali’s colors are rich and intense, and the patterns are bold and graphic. It somehow feels a little bigger and brighter than life…”
Designer Jeff Andrews’ window for Fuller + Roberts Co. won the People’s Choice award for favorite window design. His muse is Proportion, and his window featured a symmetrical design of tape measures and hanging chairs with the caption, “The tape measure doesn’t lie.” In Andrews’ own words, “Proportion is the heart of beauty. It relates one entity to another while holding so much possibility for interest, harmony, originality, and perfection.”
