Dallas Market Center and ART — The Creative Home Furnishings Network, announced the call for nominations for the 26th Annual ARTS Awards.
The ARTS Awards, presented each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, recognizes top manufacturers, retailers, designers and sales representatives from around the world. The 26th annual ARTS winners will be revealed during a gala event on Friday, Jan. 16, 2015, and will recognize excellence in 27 different categories.

“This year, Interior Designer will be added to the prestigious list of award categories, recognizing this multifaceted profession of conceptual development, project management and execution,” said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. “This highly-respected field is brimming with talent and of great importance to our industry.”

"The timing is perfect for the ARTS Awards to include a National Interior Designer category," says ART Director Sharon Davis. "We’ve seen a big trend towards interior design studio work and they are big customers of home accents. This is our opportunity to recognize and honor those individuals that are doing amazing design work at the residential level."
