Safavieh Names Finalist for 27th Annual ARTS Awards
Safavieh has been named a finalist for the 27th Annual ARTS Awards for “Best Rug Manufacturer.” The ARTS Awards are presented annually to the top companies in the home furnishings industry by the Creative Home Furnishings Network. Finalists are selected from among manufacturers, retailers, designers and sales reps in 26 individual categories. The winners from each category will be announced on Friday, January 22, 2016 at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.
“We are extremely pleased that Safavieh was chosen as an ARTS Award finalist, “said Arash Yaraghi, CEO and president of Safavieh. “It is especially gratifying because the ARTS Awards are a peer nominated program. Being recognized as one of the best rug manufacturers by the many fine companies in our industry is a very high compliment that we greatly appreciate.”
In order to compete for top honors Safavieh will have to create a digital presentation and select an area rug to be submitted to a specially selected panel of ARTS judges by November 6, 2015. However, they, and all other finalists will have to wait until the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market to find out the winners, when each will be announced in Academy Awards-like fashion at a gala celebration marking the 27th anniversary of these prestigious home furnishing awards.
“Our staff is excited about putting together a presentation and choosing a rug from our collections that best represents the rich tradition of Safavieh and our dedication to the art of rug making and the innovative spirit that drives us forward,” said Yaraghi. “And of course, we look forward to attending the ARTS Awards celebration and the prospect of winning.”
