08282019 31st Annual ARTS Awards Finalists Announced, Including Three Rug Companies

DALLAS -- Dallas Market Center and ART, the creative home furnishings network, have announced the finalists for the 31st Annual ARTS Awards taking place on Friday, January 10, 2020. Finalists in the rug category are Jaipur Living, KAS and Nourison.

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.

"Congratulations to all of the 31st Annual ARTS Awards finalists," says Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. "These carefully selected finalists represent the utmost creativity, originality and craftsmanship, and we applaud their dedication to our industry. We look forward to celebrating their accomplishments in January."

The finalists will 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, company differentiation examples, or professional information. 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.

"We are pleased to present such an impressive slate of finalists," says Sharon Davis, executive director of ART. "Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a deserving company or individual, and we look forward to honoring and celebrating all of them."
