Interior Design Magazine Presents Best Of Year Awards During Celebration in NYC

NEW YORK – Leading contract fabric supplier CF Stinson has received two Interior Design Magazine Best of Year Awards (BOY,) the preeminent design competition recognizing superior interior design products and projects.

The Light Play Collection, designed by Robert A.M. Stern, captured top honors in the contract textiles category. Also, Varati, a Bella-Dura fabric available exclusively through CF Stinson as part of Stinson’s Sarana Collection designed by Clodagh, won in the hospitality textiles category. CF Stinson’s EnVi was a finalist in the green innovation category and is now a Best of Year Honoree.

Qualified interior designers and architects selected BOY product design finalists during a two-week period in October via an online vote, and category winners were determined by a jury of leading architects and designers. According to Interior Design Magazine officials, the 9th Annual BOY program experienced record-breaking numbers with more than 2,000 product submissions – a growth of more 60 percent in the last two years. The product voting site experienced a 50 percent increase in number of unique visitors with 600,000 page views and 60,000 votes.

More than a thousand people from the design community attended the BOY awards celebration hosted by Cindy Allen, Interior Design Magazine’s editor in chief and Mark Strauss, the magazine’s president and publisher, on December 4, 2014, at the IAC Building in New York City.
