Pinnacle Awards entries due June 1
March 28, 2013,
HIGH POINT — The American Society of Furniture Designers is calling for entries for this year's Pinnacle Awards, which promote design quality and recognize the achievements of furniture designers.
June 1 is the entry deadline.
The Pinnacle Awards were created in 1995 by the ASFD board and are a prestigious industry recognition of accomplishment, officials said. This year's awards will be presented at a gala during the October High Point Market.
This year, with the ASFD's new initiative - Touching Lives by Design - entrants will be asked to point out the connection of their design to the end consumer. The impact of the furniture designer enhances the consumer's most important environment, the home, the society says.
Jason Phillips of The Phillips Collection is this year's new Pinnacle Awards chairman for the ASFD.
"We have a lot of momentum this year and the awards are our moment to shine the spotlight on the top furniture designers in the world. Being elected Pinnacle chair is an honor and responsibility I do not take lightly. Expect a gala event that will blow you away," Phillips said.
Furniture/Today is the lead sponsor of the Pinnacles. Other supporting sponsors this year are Automation 21, Continental Hardware, Furniture Design Studios, Hickory Springs Mfg., the High Point Market Authority, Home Furnishings Business, International Market Centers, Leggett & Platt, LockDowel Corp. and Sherwin-Williams.
