High Point, N.C. July 27, 2023 — Are you planning on entering the 2023 Pinnacle Awards? The International Society of Furniture Designers (ISFD) announced they have extended the 2023 Pinnacle Awards entry deadline to August 3.
To be considered for the industry’s highest design honor, product designers, manufacturers or students must enter the 2023 Pinnacle Awards on the ISFD website. Winners will be announced during the High Point Market, the industry’s highest profile show, at the Pinnacle Awards Gala on Monday, October 16 in the Loft at Condon Yards. Tickets will go on sale August 1.
“July is always a busy month with the Atlanta and Las Vegas Markets keeping many manufacturers and designers extremely busy,” said David Blair, ISFD executive director. “We have had requests from several companies for a deadline extension because they are
experiencing delays in getting their photography work done for their entries or that they needed more time to finish up their submissions.”
The Pinnacle Awards are open to all furniture and textile designers, manufacturers and students who were directly involved in designing home furnishings, décor, or textile products available for retail sale in the last year. They celebrate designs that are produced mostly in larger numbers for sale to consumers. The recipient of the highly coveted Pinnacle Award is the designer or designers who were directly involved in the “design craft” of the products(s).
