12/29/2016

ART and Dallas Market Center (DMC) announced the winners of the 27th annual ARTS Awards during a gala event held Friday, Jan. 22, at the Hilton Anatole attended by more than 500 guests. The ARTS Awards is the premier international awards program for the home industry, honoring designers, manufacturers, retailers and sales representatives, and is held each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market. Awards were given across categories including manufacturing, retail and specialty.

“We extend our sincerest congratulations to all the winners from this year’s ARTS Awards,” said Cindy Morris, President and CEO of DMC. “As a market center, it is imperative for us to recognize the hard work and dedication of the many individuals and companies that sculpt the home industry. We're privileged to have such strong ties to the design community and be able to cultivate the growth of so many individuals and companies.”

Internationally recognized style expert Robert Verdi served as the master of ceremonies for the ARTS Awards, along with a presenter slate composed of more than 17 industry stars including Kelli Ellis, Lori Dennis and Jeffrey Alan Marks.

“The ARTS Awards is our way of showing appreciation to those individuals and companies who have worked exceptionally hard in the past year,” said Sharon Davis, Executive Director of ART. “By recognizing the strides they’re making, we hope to encourage the constant move forward in the home industry.

This year’s Academy of Achievement Award was presented to Robert Currey of Currey & Co., and Tommy Mitchell Co. received the Rising Star Award, which recognizes innovation and modern excellence demonstrated by a home industry company that has been in business less than three years, selected by a panel of industry peers.
