Carpet Design Awards announces winners at Domotex

Jan '13
There were many happy faces in Hall 16 after the announcement of the winners of the 2013 Carpet Design Awards on Sunday, 13 January. It was the eighth time that this fascinating competition has been staged at DOMOTEX. The winners in ten different categories received their awards at the world’s leading trade fair for carpets and floor coverings.

Every year the prestigious Carpet Design Awards sets the highest standards in terms of the quality and design of handmade rugs and carpets. An international panel of top professionals selects the winners in ten product categories.

In a sense it is not so much the magnificence of the individual products that matters as much as the amazing overall picture presented by the 214 imaginatively designed, innovative handmade carpets from 25 countries. This is because the products exhibited in connection with the Carpet Design Awards not only represent the main trends in contemporary carpet design but also serve as an indication of the patterns, colours and materials that will dominate in the future.

“I have been involved with the jury of the Carpet Design Awards now for four years and I continue to be surprised and excited by the stream of new ideas presented each year for us to judge. This year it has been noticeable that traditional carpet patterns have re-entered the contemporary rug design lexicon, opening up many new possibilities for the coming years”, says James French, chair of the Judging Panel.

This year’s high-caliber panel of judges comprised six top names from the field of materials, so the emphasis of the competition was on the quality of the materials used and the quality of the product itself, as well as such properties as novelty, imaginative design and the implementation of creative ideas. For the first time this year the competition also included three modern design categories in the competition.

Participation in the Carpet Design Awards competition is not exclusively restricted to exhibitors at the leading trade fair DOMOTEX. This underlines the international significance of the award, which is viewed by participants, and effectively used by the winners, as a mark of quality which is recognized worldwide.
