Pinnacle Awards: ISFD honors top home furnishings designs

The International Society of Furniture Designers recognized this year’s top home furnishings designers when the organization announced the winners of the 26th annual Pinnacle Awards at a celebration Monday, Oct. 24. This year’s theme, “Creating Tomorrow’s Homes,” focused on the styles, forms, finishes and functionality of furnishings that will be part of consumers’ future lives.

“It is impressive how the Pinnacle Awards have grown in notability, creativity and number of entries over the past few years,” said John Conrad, ISFD executive director. “Also, it is good to see that more companies are recognizing the value of professional product designers, along with the added revenue that is generated from Pinnacle-awarded products. I want to thank all that have contributed to make this year’s Pinnacle Awards even more memorable. That list includes the designers and manufacturers who shared their extraordinary work with us and the judges who spent hours reviewing the entries to select the Pinnacle Awards finalists and winners.”

Here is the official list of winners who were honored with the 2022 Pinnacle Awards trophy. Photos can be downloaded at Pinnacle Awards winners.

To show the ISFD’s appreciation and as an acknowledgment for the groundwork that Conrad has laid over the past 10 years helping design students and product design professionals in the furniture industry, the ISFD board has renamed the Student Pinnacle Award as the John Conrad Student Pinnacle Award.

“John created the annual Student Pinnacle Award in 2014 to help prepare design students for a future in the furniture industry,” said Steve Wilcox, ISFD executive board president and president of Furnishings Design Inc. “He has shared his time, experience, knowledge and introduced these students to industry leaders to get their careers started.” 

Liz Moore, ISFD chair and furniture designer for Otto and Moore Inc., added, “John is one of the most passionate people I know, and he has truly made a mark on our organization. I’m lucky to have been by his side since I was a KCAD design student and, with his guidance, I have been exposed to many wonderful opportunities for my career, as well as nonprofit experiences.”

Interior designer Libby Langdon and Bill McLoughlin, editor-in-chief of Furniture Today, served as co-masters of ceremonies, with Langdon giving the keynote. The event was held at High Point University’s Nido and Mariana Qubein Arena and Conference Center

The Pinnacle Awards are the furniture industry’s highest honor recognizing the top professional and student furniture designers who envision and create the designs that ultimately become some of the most sought-after home furnishings items 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. 

The 2022 Pinnacle Awards sponsors are Continental Hardware, Elements Studios, Furniture Design Studios, Furniture Today, High Point Market Authority, International Market Centers, Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University, Leggett & Platt and Sherwin-Williams. ISFD also thanks High Point University and the International Textile Alliance for their continued support.
