The IFDA SELECT winners at NY NOW have been announced, drum roll...

And, the winners are, 
drum roll...

IFDA SELECTS was created to support and promote the design industry by highlighting innovative and creative products to various categories.  Eight talents--board members and friends of the IFDA--were hand picked as design spotters and judges in categories that work with their expertise.  The judges chose a BEST IN SHOW winner in their category at NY NOW last Sunday.  It was a fun and productive morning on opening day.  The judges met up early Sunday in the press room, then spread out throughout the show, walked the floor and chose their favorites in their categories.  Winners were announced the next morning at the IFDA Color Event at NY NOW.  
Come take a look...
 Andrea Algaze, Design Concepts
Winner:  Tommy Mitchell

Dwayne Clark, IDMG
Winner: Emporium Home by Ashley Childers
“The curated design sensibility embodies fashion for interiors and is committed to creating unique and beautiful products that has a respectful nod to fine furniture.”
Judge: Nancy Fire, Design Works Intl
"Innovative products - pillows and ottomans.  The ottomans are creative and commercial at the same time.  All products are made in Miami and are clever in style, fabric and trim.  Also love the pillows with the wood trim!”
Judge: Hermine Mariaux, 
Hermine Mariaux, Inc
 Winner: Savora “Sid Ramnarance Products”
“Utility does not need to exclude beauty.  This is a collection based on the same mindset of Apple and response is just as emotional.”
Judge: Tamara Matthews-Stephenson, Tamara Stephenson Design
Winner: RabLabs "Gold Strainer Bowl"
"The webbed strainer bowls are inspired by the design of sea fans, and created in 24K gold plated then offered in two sizes.  The smaller ones with a glass insert would make an extraordinary soup bowl for the stylish host’s dinner table."
Judge:  Rose Ott, Rose Ott Interior Design
Winner: Dean Rhys-Morgan “Madam X”
“Madam X was painted in by Jeremiah (Goodman) earlier in his career for a decorating magazine of Babe Pailey’s bedroom and reprinted on paper.  Jeremiah wanted his pieces to be a personal statement of the client and Madam X reflects a serene, soft elegance with beautiful brush strokes.”
Judge: Julie Schuster, 
Julie Schuster Design Studio
Winner: Pivot Encore 
“Recycled Instrument Art”
"All product used is re purposed from old instruments; made locally upstate, employing previously incarcerated men they retain to make their product.”
