This year marked the 4th edition of Howard Elliott’s Show Us Your Howard Elliott Contest. Contestants submitted photos of their design installations or retail showrooms using Howard Elliott products for a chance to win one of two $500 prizes.
Entries were divided into two categories: Interior Design and Retail Showroom. “I do not envy the judges this year. We received our largest number of submissions in the history of the contest!” says Brian Berk, President of Howard Elliott. “Entrants spanned the continent; from Canada to Central America!”
The judges included Justin Shaulis - Interior Designer & HGTV Star; David Santiago – Interior Designer, Influencer & Opera Singer; Diane Falvey – Editor-in-Chief of Furniture, Lighting & Décor; Saxon Henry – Author, Journalist & Content Stragiest for Adroyt & Modern Salonniere. “It was nice to see the pride everyone had in using Howard Elliott products and how terrific they looked in different situations,” stated Saxon.
Winner of the Interior Design category is Haneen’s Haven with the Gold Talida Mirror. Haneen is one of the bloggers on the Spring 2019 High Point Design Bloggers Tour. “I actually recently started following Howard Elliott and realized that’s who the mirror belongs to! Which was a pleasant surprise! This photo was featured in the Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas Issue this past winter,” stated Haneen Matt.
Runner-up in the category is New Perspective Design from Cary, IL with the Tennessee Mirrors. “We used two Tennessee mirrors in this dining room to frame an area for a large piece of artwork and a settee," says principal designer Angie Gardeck.
Winner of the Retail Category is Home Gallerie Interiors of Lima, Peru. In their showroom you can find Howard Elliott accessories providing the perfect finishing touch to each vignette. Home Gallerie received a unanimous decision in the category. “This merchandising setting feels like you're walking into someone's living room. For consumers who have difficulty visualizing how something could work, this does the work for them. I'd just go in and buy everything in this space,” said Falvey.
Runner-up in the category is The Indigo Pearl in Waxhaw, NC. Their feature product is the Howard Elliott Leather Sling Chair. Introduced earlier in the year, The Indigo Pearl has taken an immediate love of the design and shows off the versatility of the chair in various design settings.
