This year’s Showroom Design Competition at the High Point Market Week will feature a top-notch panel of judges including Architectural Digest Editor in Chief Margaret Russell, world-renowned interior designer David Easton, and Home Accents Today senior product editor Tracy Bulla

“We are very pleased to have such a distinguished group of judges for this year’s competition,” said Cheminne Taylor-Smith, vice president of marketing for the High Point Market Authority. “Designers and retailers know that the High Point Market is the place where great ideas begin—and that it’s a fantastic showcase for fresh new merchandising inspirations. By highlighting and honoring our exhibitors in this competition, we hope to provide retailers with ideas and techniques that they can use throughout the year.”

2010 Best of Market went to Beeline Home by Bunny Williams.

Held during Market Week, the Showroom Design Competition seeks to recognize and celebrate the creativity of High Point Market exhibitors. The judges will vote for The Best of Market Awards, given to the showroom that best exemplifies design excellence. All Market exhibitors are invited to submit photos of their best showroom displays by 5:00 p.m. on October 21 to be considered. Awards will be handed out on October 24 during the Stars Under The Stars concert.
