Heather Scott- Awarded Best Home Accents Store!
January 25, 2013 in Heather Scott Home & Design Store | 9 comments

What an amazing start to the new year- Heather Scott Home & Design won a fabulous award this past Saturday for “Best Home Accents Store- Midwest/Southwest”.  The trophy was given at the ARTS Awards- an annual home furnishings industry event held in conjunction with the Dallas Market Center.

There were 3 such awards for the country- East coast (congrats to our friends at J. Banks in Hilton Head!), West coast (Interior Illusions) and Midwest/Southwest (us!).  What an honor!

We were so excited!  This was our first time at the event and everyone kept telling us it was “the Academy Awards’” or the “Oscars” of our industry.  With ‘black tie’ as the dress code, we made our reservations and planned to attend when notified we were selected as one of 4 finalists for the Mid-west/South-west category.

The evening started with a  cocktail party at the Hilton Anatole.

Scott and I got to chat with John Giddings from HGTV’s Curb Appeal.  He was one of the presenters for the evening.  What a nice guy!

The majority of the awards are for manufacturing leaders in our industry- congrats to some of our favorite companies for winning awards for their products- such as Worlds Away, Arteriors and Uttermost.

Luckily, Scott is a great public speaker so he gave our acceptance speech!

Many of our sales reps were at the event and were excited to celebrate with us (Susan Whitworth pictured here with us)!

It was awesome to bring the trophy back to the store and share it with our sales team, each of whom contributed to our ability to achieve this honor.  Wow! What a blessing.  Just another reason to continue to do our best each and every day.  You never know whether or not hard work will be acknowledged, but when it is, it feels fantastic!  We trust you will celebrate this ‘Super Bowl’ (sports analogy for Scott here) of victories with us in 2013 and help keep us focused on doing our best for each of you!
