SEATTLE — At the 2016 Furniture Today Leadership Conference, Progressive Business Media introduced its inaugural Furniture Industry Leadership Awards, a new recognition program in which retailers, manufacturers and consumers select the honorees.

The first-of-its-kind industry awards program is designed to recognize best-in-class retail organizations at three sales volume levels: under $50 million, $51 million to $350 million and more than $350 million.

The retail store winner in the $51 million to $350 million sales volume category for 2016 was Roche Bobois, described as “a unique play in the high-end market.” Founded in 1960, the family owned manufacturer/retailer now operates an international network of more than 250 stores in 50 countries, including this Seattle location, one of 27 stores in the U.S.
