The 18th edition of the Carpet Design Awards—presented in partnership with COVER and HALI magazines—will take place at Domotex in January, the first live CDA presentation since 2020. The awards honour the best in contemporary carpet design, with a focus on innovation, execution and sustainability. Floored by Nature, is the keynote theme of Domotex in 2023, highlighting the subject of sustainability in rug production.
