Hecht, is honored by the Curtain and Domestic Industry as one of the
designers of the year in October 1990, along with Martha Stewart, Mary
Stevens of Waverly Fabrics and Raymond Waites.

“Randy is conceptually a very, very bright thinker,” says
Glen Raven CEO Allen Gant Jr., grandson of founder John
Quinton Gant. “He has the capacity to walk into a room and
see it in a homogeneous way that allows him to put different
colors and patterns together that make the room sparkle and
come alive. Randy has an incredible ability to understand and
coordinate color. His styling and design pushed us to use more
color and more design than we probably would have.”
