The 59th Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast is Sunday night,
Architectural Digest has selected AD 100 designer
Timothy Corrigan to create the signature Architectural
Digest Greenroom. This tremendously successful partnership,
now in its sixth year, launched the concept of a high-design
backstage haven for celebrity talent, befitting one of the
biggest nights in Hollywood. The room is built from scratch,
transforming an industrial backstage area intoa luxuriously
"This year's Architectural Digest greenroom is inspired
by an English country living room, combining 18th-century
antiques with the latest TV technology," said Corrigan. "These
influences mix with a casual California attitude and eco-friendly
elements to round out the form and functionality of the room."
For the first time, the Architectural Digest Greenroom will be
green both ecologically and in color, with various shades used
throughout. The room's wood-paneled walls are being constructed
with reclaimed wood from a local California high school football
stadium, and all textiles are made with 100% natural fibers.
Presenters will watch the onstage action on the greenroom's
Sharp AQUOS Liquid Crystal Televisions;the company is at the
forefront of eco-consciousness, from the elimination of PVCs in
manufacturing to its award-winning "Super Green Factory," which
will completely offset its production of greenhouse gas
emissions by theyear 2010."
