Vermont Business Magazine The Contemporary Design Group, a retail buying, networking and performance group, has announced the finalists for the 2017 Edward Haimsohn Design Award. Now in its 4th year, the award recognizes manufacturers producing outstanding and original furniture designs. Lyndon Furniture of Vermont is among the finalists with its "Unity Table." lyndon.com
A panel of judges, consisting of CDG retailer members, evaluated the nominees on originality, creativity, consumer appeal, use of materials, functionality, and manufacturing execution. The winner will be announced in December at the group’s annual conference.
“It’s a great marketing opportunity for anyone creating great new pieces to promote their designs to the modern furniture shopper,” said CDG’s executive director Alicia Mendez. “Getting additional exposure at High Point Market, when you have a chance to get buyers to your showroom is an obvious plus.”
The award is named after CDG's co-founder, Edward Haimsohn, who was well known for his strong eye for design and attention to quality. Today, Haimsohn is retired and living in San Diego.
