ISFD Announces the Winners of the 25th Anniversary Pinnacle Awards®


The 2021 Pinnacle Awards, sponsored by the International Society of Furniture Designers (ISFD), commemorated their 25th anniversary at a celebration held last night at COHAB.Space in High Point. This year’s celebration theme, “Community”, focused on the many ways that the Pinnacle Awards unite designers, manufacturers, retailers, organizations, agencies, and the media creating one cohesive community.


“I want to thank the ‘Community’ who joined together to make this year’s celebration a truly special one,” stated John Conrad, ISFD executive director. “That list includes the designers and manufacturers who shared their extraordinary work with us and the judges who spent hours reviewing all of the entries to select the Pinnacle Awards finalists and winners. I also want to recognize our wonderful co-Masters of Ceremonies Bill McLoughlin, editor in chief of Furniture Today and keynote speaker, Breegan Jane, globally acclaimed interior designer, HGTV television host and author along with the many representatives from the various ‘Community’ organizations that presented the Pinnacle Awards to the winners. And a special thanks goes out to the ISFD board whose support was instrumental in creating this event. Thank you all!”


The Pinnacle Awards are the furniture industry’s highest honor recognizing the top professional and student furniture designers who envision and create the designs that ultimately become some of the most sought-after home furnishings items around the world.  Their works are produced and marketed by companies large and small, but with a common denominator—to proudly illustrate that artistry, craft, and innovation are important and quite desirable to the consumer marketplace.
