being referred to as a legend in your field is quite an honor. It’s a title that should lend a sense of accomplishment, a feeling of having arrived. It might even be considered liberating. But at times it also must feel rather weighty, as if you always have to hit the mark. Putting together this Masters of Design issue carries a similar bundle of joy and responsibility. Whose projects will we choose? The balance must be right! What lessons do the legends have to teach us in these homes? Do they have their own furnishings and accessories lines?
