Everyone knows the Oscars are nothing more than an annual, bloated mess of a show where a famous host gets to damage their career by telling unfunny jokes, and crying movie stars get to deliver rambling and incomprehensible speeches. To experience a much more sophisticated awards ceremony, all one has to do is check out the ARTS Awards – or what we like to call “the Oscars of Home Décor.”
The Dallas Market Center and the Accessories Resource Team (ART) presented the 22nd Annual ARTS Awards at a gala dinner on Saturday, January 22, during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market. Awards were given in 28 different categories including Home Textiles, Outdoor Living, Decorative Accessories, and Lighting Fixtures. We thought the Lighting Fixtures category, won by Corbett Lighting, was especially impressive thanks to Corbett’s exceptional submission. Their Diva Chandelier exudes quintessential sophistication and luxury, and is far less fussy than any of the actresses in the Oscar’s Best Actress category. This great lighting manufacturer was already on our radar, but we’ll be paying a lot more attention to them in the future.
There were also incredible products in a number of other categories; you can view all the winners here.
