DALLAS -- Dallas Market Center, producer of the ARTS Awards, and ART, the creative home furnishings network, today announced the finalists for the 29th annual ARTS Awards, including Loloi, KAS, Nourison and Company C in the area rug category.
The ARTS Awards, presented each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, is the premier awards program in the U.S. honoring top manufacturers, retailers, designers, and sales representatives in the home industry. The 29th annual ARTS Awards winners will be revealed during a gala event on Friday, Jan. 19, 2018.
"These finalists are the industry's best representatives and reflect the highest level of creativity, passion, innovation, and dedication," said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. "We congratulate all of this year's finalists and look forward to a wonderful evening of celebration."
"The 29th ARTS Awards finalists include legends and impressive new leaders," said Sharon Davis, executive director of ART. "We look forward to working with each of them on the submission process and to honoring all of them in January."
The finalists each submit a creative digital presentation to a panel of independent judges. Digital submissions vary based upon category and may consist of product development, marketing, merchandising, or company differentiation examples. In November, the judges will convene in Dallas for two days to review each individual or company submission. Once all components of judging are complete, a designated accounting firm tabulates and secures the scores until the winners are announced for the first time at the ARTS Awards gala.
