Finalists named for 29th ARTS Awards

DALLAS – Dallas Market Center, producer of the ARTS Awards, and ART, the creative home furnishings network, has announced the finalists for the 29th annual ARTS Awards.

The ARTS Awards, presented each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, honors 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 finalists each submit a creative digital presentation to a panel of independent judges. In November, the judges will convene in Dallas to review each individual or company submission, and the winners will be announced for the first time at the ARTS Awards gala.
