Determined to honor the top emerging talent in interior design, online home furnishings retailer Wayfair has launched the Trade Tastemaker Awards, which will not only name a “Designer of the Year,” but also recognize one designer in each of the following categories: Rising Star, Best Design Innovator, Best Use of Color, Best Design Solution and Best Commercial Space.
Helping to choose the winners of the inaugural awards are established interior designers Candice Olson, Jeffrey Alan Marks and Windsor Smith.
