ISFD 2023 Pinnacle Awards® Recognizes Top Designers As Winners 

High Point, N.C. October 17, 2023 — This year at the International Society of Furniture Designers (ISFD) Pinnacle Awards “Untamed Minds” Gala held on Monday, October 16 in the Loft at Congdon Yards in High Point, a slate of industry notables presented professional and student home furnishings and textile designers with the prestigious  2023 Pinnacle Awards. The Pinnacle Awards are the furniture industry’s highest honor, recognizing brilliant designs created by individuals who envision and craft the pieces that become some of the most sought-after home furnishings around the world. Their works are produced and marketed by companies large and small, but with a common denominator—to proudly illustrate that artistry, craft, and innovation are important and quite desirable to the consumer marketplace. 


“I want to thank the creative beasts who have contributed their time and talents to make this year’s Pinnacle Awards an outstanding event,” stated David Blair, executive director of ISFD. “Our Untamed Minds list includes the designers and manufacturers who are constantly working to take design in a new direction and the panel of esteemed judges who spent hours poring over the entries to select the Pinnacle Awards finalists and winners. In addition, I would like to recognize Kaitlin Petersen, editor in chief of Business of Home, who inspired us with her thoughts as the keynote speaker and our master of ceremonies, Bill McLoughlin, editor in chief of Furniture Today. Thanks also to the many ambassadors who presented the Pinnacle Awards to the winners. And a special thanks goes out to the ISFD board whose driving force was instrumental in creating this event. Thank you all!”

Here is the official list of winners who were honored with the 2023 Pinnacle Awards trophy. Photos can be downloaded at Pinnacle Awards Winners.
