Now in its 22nd year, the annual ARTS Awards gala brought together the decorative accessory and lighting industries last month to recognize excellence in 28 categories. Given by the Dallas Market Center and the Accessories Resource Team (ART), the awards were presented on Jan. 22 during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market and attended by approximately 600 people.
This year’s Academy of Achievement Award was bestowed on HGTV for its impact on the industry. In addition, awards were handed out in 12 manufacturing categories, including the first Green Manufacturer award; four sales representative categories; and 11 retailer categories. – Andrea Lillo
