At the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market earlier this month, the ART organization and the Dallas Market Center named the winners of the 26th-annual ARTS Awards, presenting this year’s Academy of Achievement Award to Mac Hoak of Mecox.

Under the guidance and vision of Hoak, Mecox has energized the home industry with its selection of home and garden furnishings that are, according to the Dallas Market Center, unmatched in quality, texture and form.
