The Quintessentially Awards, Asia Pacific, has nominated Sussanne Roshan as Interior Designer of the year in the Interior Design Category.
Roshan, is the wife of Bollywood actor, Hrithik Roshan. She was nominated alongside four other international interior designers including Thomas Hamel from Aedas, in Sydney, Australia, and Alan Chan from Hong Kong.
The awards also recognise international talent in other categories such as photographers Annie Lebowitz and Prasad Naik, architect IM Pei, fashion designers Alexander Wang and Christopher Kane and philanthropist, Ratan Tata.
The Charcoal Project by Roshan launched in early 2011 to an enthusiastic response. The design practice and retail space catapulted the designer to the top of the list of interior designers in India.
It is a store with décor products that range from French antique furniture and modern eclectic furniture to home accessories, dinnerware, table linen, crockery, soft furnishings, installations, artifacts, and limited edition photo-art and accent pieces.
It showcases exclusive lines by renowned designers such as Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and Andrew Martin, as well as furniture designed by Roshan herself.
“I am delighted to be part of such a list of amazing talent. This recognition has encouraged me to try and reach new heights of thought and innovation. This is a complete high for me,” she said.
“I am looking forward to be in Hong Kong to attend the celebrations and meet with the fantastic names who are my co nominees.”
First launched in London in 2010, the Quintessentially Awards celebrates the finest luxury lifestyle brands across fashion, watch, art, wine and dining, travel and other lifestyle sectors. Nominees in each category reflect the pinnacles of luxury lifestyle, exclusivity and elegance.
The awards ceremony will be held in Hong Kong on November 1.
