Tons of Pics of The Wallpaper Magazine 2009 Design Winners!

The 2009 Wallpaper Design Awards were announced earlier this year. To make up for my being a little behind on sharing them with you, I've added many images in addition to the single ones for each category from Wallpaper.

This year's esteemed panel of judges included Kanye West, Jean Nouvel, Ines de la Fressange, Marc Newson, Sir Ken Adam and Stefano Pilati. To see all the nominees and runner ups as well as bios of the judges, go here.
