The Nina Magon collection from Universal Furniture won for Major Collections at the 2020 Pinnacle Awards.

The Pinnacle finalists were recognized and the winners revealed on Saturday, October 24 during the Pinnacle Awards’ Great Designs Unmasked, an online TV-style program on the ISFD’s YouTube channel. Acclaimed interior designer Corey Damen Jenkins keynoted the awards ceremony.

The 2020 Pinnacle Awards, sponsored by the International Society of Furniture Designers (ISFD), recognize 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 desirable to the consumer marketplace.

According to John Conrad, ISFD executive director, “The judges commented that selecting just one winner in each of the 20 categories was incredibly difficult. We not only had a record number of entries but the designs from all of the finalists were exceptional this year creating very stiff competition. The designers should all be very proud of their work.”

We would like to thank all of the judges for their discerning eye for detail and quality designs. The judging panel represents an influential mix of high-profile industry leaders and innovators including: Christi Barbour, Co-founder and Partner, Barbour Spangle Design; Everick Brown, Founder and Principal, Everick Brown Design; Kelly DiFoggio, International Textiles Alliance President and Director of Sales and Marketing for Yarn and Loom; Diane Falvey, Furniture Lighting & Décor Editor in Chief; John Gill, Haverty’s EVP Merchandising; Susan Inglis, Executive Director, Sustainable Furnishings Council; Stephanie James, Allen and James Interior Design Co- founder & Co-owner; Kris Kolar, Buyer, Clive Daniel Home; Ida McCausland, IFDA International President; Kaitlin Petersen, Business of Home Editor in Chief; Rick Schroeder, professional furniture designer and past President and   Chairman of the ISFD board; Jomo Tariku, Ethiopian American Artist and Industrial Designer; Maria West, Maria West Photography Founder/Designer.
