Furniture World News on

The American Society of Furniture Designers (ASFD) is proud to call for entries for the second annual ASFD 2006 President’s Award. The President's Award is intended to honor talented young furniture designers in conjunction with the Pinnacle Design Achievement Awards which will be presented on Monday evening, October 16 at the International Home Furnishings Ballroom in High Point, NC. This career achievement award was created to honor the memories of the late David Kline, Roger Schneeman and Alan Friedman who were professional furniture designers and former ASFD presidents since 1997. The ASFD President's Award is open to any staff or freelance furniture designer who will be 35 years of age or younger on October 16, 2006. Portfolios will be judged on designs manufactured for the North American retail home furnishings market. Candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by an employer, co-worker or client. The criteria for judging will include signs of exceptional creativity; exhibited ability to learn and grow; and how much the applicant has contributed already to the furniture industry. A subcommittee of the 2006 Pinnacle Awards Judges will select the President's Award recipient. The President's Award Entry forms can be downloaded at www.asfdpinnacle.com or mailed by request at info@asfd.com; or telephone (910) 576-1273. The deadline for entries will be August 4, 2006 which is also the deadline for Pinnacle award entries.
