The finalists for the 2017 Carpet Design Awards have been announced. On 24 November, the CDA jury of design and carpet industry experts shortlisted a total of 24 carpet creations in eight categories. The shortlisted carpets will be on display in the Hall 17 Innovations@DOMOTEX area at DOMOTEX 2017 in Hannover, Germany. The jury will whittle the chosen rugs down to eight winners on Friday 13 January and these will be announced on Sunday 15 January. Visitors will be able to vote for the ‘Best Liked by DOMOTEX Visitors’ winner, which will be announced at the end of the show.
These much-coveted awards are well-respected in the industry and show the diversity and excellence that exists within it. You will surely have your own choice of winner but look out for the jury’s final decisions in January.
