She is a member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame, was named "Designer of Distinction" for 2002 by ASID and an “Icon of Design” by Traditional Home Magazine in 2009.

“I wanted to strike an elegant note for the outdoors.” The companion Windmark ottoman can serve as a table, a seat, or a footrest and adds an intimate, comfortable touch. Chairs and ottoman have aluminum strap frames and patterned steel or wood slat seats, backs and tops; the chairs have a specially designed stainless steel fastener that adds a nice detail. The arm of the chair is simple, flat and comfortable. The chair without arms expands seating applications, especially in tight spaces such as cafes and restaurants. The combined use of aluminum and steel imparts visual lightness with structural strength and heft enough to hold the ground in the wind. The work of a master architect who understands furniture and space, Windmark is another inspired Landscape Forms solution for helping designers create a Sense of Place.
