Design Excellence honors

Awards spotlight 10 categories

Kettler’s Sereno Barrel Back Chair was recognized as the winner of the 2009 Lillian B. Winchester Best of Show Award during the 50th annual Apollo Awards at Chicago’s Union Station.

The chair won the Wrought Iron/Wrought Aluminum category, which drew the Design Excellence contest’s largest number of entries for a second consecutive year.

The category winners were named during an earlier award presentation in the Merchandise Mart’s 7th floor Market Suites.

Judges selected products from 10 categories in the design contest, which drew just over 100 entries. The Resin/Fiberglass category did not attract enough entries to be judged. Outdoor rugs, carpeting and flooring were judged in a separate category from the Complementary Casual niche.
