The American Society of Furniture Designers (ASFD) is proud to announce FurnitureFan.com as a new sponsor for the ASFD’s Pinnacle Design Achievement Awards program. FurnitureFan.com, a leading Internet furniture directory for consumers, features furniture manufacturers and retailers throughout the United States and Canada. Reportedly, this five-year old company offers the largest available online selection of furniture manufacturer’s catalogs making the business of researching furniture styles before visiting a store as easy as clicking a mouse. “The site was created to address the need for an unbiased, comprehensive display of furniture in a single location for consumers,” said FurnitureFan.com’s Chief Executive Officer Sev Ritchie. “We provide detailed information for each item and listings of local stores where you can find these collections. Whether consumers are brand savvy or not they can quickly find products that match their desires and living environments, as well as where to buy these designs.” ASFD member and Pinnacle Committee Chairman Karl Felperin, commented, “FurnitureFan.com is an exciting venue for manufacturers and consumers to come together online in an educational and inspirational format. As FurnitureFan.com continues to navigate its viewing audience through the best brands and styles available to suit their needs, it will now be able to call attention to award-winning designs by distinguished designers and brand name manufacturers.” Ritchie added, “We are honored to be chosen by the ASFD to present the nominated product, as well as the winners to consumers, who are researching furniture on FurnitureFan.com. Consumers will see the Pinnacle Award icon on an image they are viewing and the icon will provide the consumer the ability to learn more about the Pinnacle Award, the ASFD, and why that particular product was worthy of consideration or award. This feature will be active by the middle of June on FurnitureFan.com., and will be updated each time the next round of nominees and winners are named.” ASFD’s Executive Director Christine Evans remarked, “We are very enthusiastic about our new sponsor FurnitureFan.com and the opportunity to educate the buying public about quality design and our Pinnnacle Award designees.
