2016 Designers’ Choice Awards

Our survey of area designers and architects

Each year, Home & Design polls hundreds of area professionals to discover their picks for leaders in the innovative, ever-evolving home-design industry—as well as their votes of confidence in those just making their marks. We also ask architects and designers to vote on their favorite industry resources, in categories ranging from audio-video and appliance showrooms to lighting dealers and art galleries.
