On Friday, January 22, 2016, in Dallas, Texas, the home furnishings industry, led by the Dallas Market Center and the Accessories Resource Team, held their annual awards gala recognizing the top tier of lighting & furniture retailers, designers, and manufacturers in North America.  The 27th Annual ARTS Awards celebrated, as it does it each year, the very best in the ever growing industry of home furnishings and décor in a grand ceremony held at the Hilton Anatole.  Pace Lighting was awarded the top honor for a lighting showroom, receiving the ARTS Award in the “Retailers” category for Lighting Showroom in the East/Atlantic region of the United States.
Pace Lighting was judged against two other premier lighting showrooms who were also nominated for this award.  Finalists were selected by a nominating committee of industry professionals who evaluated the hundreds of nominees submitted online.  Finalists then submitted an expansive digital portfolio detailing their leadership in the home furnishings industry in areas ranging from marketing to merchandising, and a panel of distinguished judges with extensive expertise in the home furnishings market reviewed the submissions and selected this year’s winners.
Pace Lighting’s CEO, Lisa Dixon, stated, “Winning an ARTS Award is a dream come true and is one of the most humbling honors Pace Lighting could receive from our distinguished peers.  It is a testament to the entire Pace Lighting team and the passion with which we serve our mission – the inspired illumination of your space.  We are proud to serve our community and clients offering the best in lighting, fans and home décor in a space that strives to provide inspiration to our clients, staff, and industry alike.  We could not be more delighted or thrilled with this recognition.”
