Traditional Home magazine is celebrating two landmark anniversaries this year—its 25th Silver Anniversary and its 10th Annual Classic Woman Awards. In honor of both milestones, Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer will host a celebratory dinner on Monday, October 27, at which design icon Mario Buatta and digital entrepreneur Michael Bruno will be recognized.

Buatta will receive the magazine’s first Lifetime Achievement Award. His designs were featured in one of the very first issues of Traditional Home, and his association with the magazine continues to this day. Bruno, founder of 1stdibs, which revolutionized the world of online luxury shopping, will be presented with the magazine’s first Trailblazer Award.
“During this very special time, our Silver Anniversary, we are thrilled to honor Mario Buatta and Michael Bruno for their vast contributions to the design community and to our readers,” said Traditional Home Editor-in-Chief Ann Omvig Maine.
Each year, the Classic Woman Awards also celebrates the spirit of volunteerism and service by recognizing five standout charitable women from across the country. “These remarkable women truly exhibit strength of spirit and character and demonstrate the very best in volunteerism,” added Maine.
The five honorees were nominated by Traditional Home readers from across the country, and were selected by Maine and the magazine’s editors, who poured over the nominations to select these women who are changing the world. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony and their causes will also be featured in the magazine’s November/December issue, on newsstands November 4.
