The ARTS Awards process begins with the nomination of retailers, manufacturers, designers, and sales representatives. After nominations are received, a nomination committee of industry peers evaluates the entries and determines finalists. A separate judging panel then convenes in the fall to review and score finalists’ materials.  Winners will be announced during a gala event on Friday, January 7, 2022. Neither membership in ART nor representation at Dallas Market Center is necessary to nominate or to be a nominee.

The 32nd ARTS Awards categories are:

  • Manufacturer

  • Sales Representative
  • Product Designer
  • Interior Designer

Sponsors for the ARTS Awards include Aspire Design & Home; Business of Home; Designers Today; D Home; Furniture, Lighting & Décor; Furniture Today; Gifts & Decorative Accessories; Home Accents Today; Home Textiles Today; Interior Design Society, and Sustainable Furnishings Council.
