Year round, our showrooms work hard to merchandise their spaces and many celebrate the Furniture Show by unveiling new product lines for the upcoming seasons. It’s the perfect time to show off all things new for Spring! With so many beautifully merchandised spaces to choose from, our judges had to make the difficult decision of choosing just one.

And the winner for the best SOFA Showroom category goes to….



The integration and pops of color blended where it mattered most is what made this beautifully appointed showroom win gold. This team worked tirelessly to bring its visitors the very best in its showroom layout. The product lineup is beautifully featured.

Our Silver, second place award goes to….



This well laid out, functional space is what brought this showroom into second place. The overall appearance and visitor experience is what scored the most for this award. Distinctive Appliances consistently delivers by providing an exceptional layout for its diverse and high end product line up.


The Turquoise Palace team did an exceptional job upgrading the finishes in their already stunningly beautiful space. Their showroom received a fresh coat of paint along with an update with its lighting. The finishing touches made all the difference in transforming this space into a real thing of beauty. The judges all agreed that the ranking of the scores were so close overall. Turquoise Palace really went above and beyond this year. They truly deserve to be recogonized for creating the perfect 'happy place'.
