The 24th Annual ARTS Awards
September 03, 2012 in Uncategorized | 5 comments

A couple of weeks ago I told you it was the best week ever.  There was the TV show, then the ASID awards and one other thing I could not announce just yet.

Well, it is now official, Heather Scott Home & Design has been selected as a finalist for the 24th Annual Arts Award!

What exactly does that mean, you ask?  It is really a great achievement in our business.   Our store was nominated by the industry and chosen as one of four finalist for “Best Home Accents Store” in the mid-west/south-west.

It is an honor we can’t apply for, or solicit votes toward.  Independent judges, including Lisa Newsom (Veranda magazine founder), will select the actual category winner, who will be announced in January at the Dallas Market.

In addition to regional home accents stores and a national furniture store award, this is also the opportunity for the manufacturers who produce the great products we sell to be recognized.

We thought we would share with you some of the nominated product manufacturers we use, so you could see some of their creativity and design work.

Accent Furniture: Worlds Away

From my hometown, Memphis, TN, Worlds Away creates chic, stylish accent furniture, often with mirrored, gold or silver-leafed details.

Wall Décor: Wendover Art Group

We have been ordering from Wendover, out of Florida, for many years. They have that coastal look we just love. Here are a pair of their coral prints I recently used in a master bedroom design project. Coincidently, the nightstand on the right is from Worlds Away.

One last mention, local product designer, Ron McIntyre, has been nominated, for his company Square Feathers.

Home Textiles: Square Feathers

Located in Austin, Texas, we have the had the fortune of knowing the owner, Ron, since the very beginning of both our businesses. His pillows have taken the market by storm and are a wonderful mix of materials and textures.  For designers looking for a way to really customize rooms for adults and children, Square Feathers is a great resource to go to!

A little travel tip: If I am traveling somewhere, I always look at this list to see if there is a local home store worth checking out!

We will be sure to share photos from the awards event in January!
