Buckminster Upholstery, Falls City, NE, was recognized with the 2013 International Achievement Award (IAA) for design excellence in specialty fabrics applications, that took place Oct. 24 at the IFAI Specialty Fabrics Expo 2013 and Advanced Textiles Conference & Trade Show, at the Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Buckminster Upholstery received an Award of Excellence for its 1890’s Turkish Couch project. The project was recognized in the competition’s Upholstery category.

IFAI received a total of 236 entries from 13 countries that were submitted for 29 categories in this year’s competition. Winners were selected based on complexity, design, workmanship, uniqueness and function. Judges included industry experts, editors, architects, educators and design professionals who were chosen for their knowledge in a particular field of study or product area.

All entries receive prominent recognition at the IFAI Specialty Fabrics Expo 2013 and Advanced Textiles Conference & Trade Show, the largest specialty fabrics trade show in the Americas. Entrants receive additional publicity through coverage in IFAI magazines and press releases distributed to media professionals.

For more than six decades, IAA has recognized excellence in design and innovation, highlighting truly spectacular work in the specialty fabrics and technical textiles industry. The goal of IAA is to promote awareness of the specialty fabrics used in thousands of products and applications ranging in size and type.

The International Achievement Awards competition is sponsored by IFAI, a not-for-profit trade association whose 1,800 member companies represent the international specialty fabrics and technical textiles marketplace.

Kim Buckminster with Buckminster Upholstery has been in business for over 30 years and has won numerous awards for his upholstery work.
