High Point, NC , Oct. 24, 2011 —The home furnishings industry’s annual showcase for excellence in showroom design culminated tonight with the presentation of two awards honoring the High Point Market’s most creative and innovative exhibitors.

The panel of judges for the annual event included Margaret Russell, editor in chief of Architectural Digest; iconic designer and architect David Easton; and Tracy Bulla, senior product editor for Home Accents Today.

According to the judges, runners up for the Best of Market award this season were:
  • C.R. Laine Furniture (IHFC H1004), and 
  • BeeLine Home by Bunny Williams (310 North Hamilton St.). 
For the People’s Choice Award, all marketgoers were invited to vote for their favorite showroom design via Twitter or text messaging. Judging criteria is left to the discretion of individual Market attendees.
