Couture wins 2 Pinnacle Awards

 7 November 2011      

HIGH POINT, North Carolina (07 November 2011) - Canadian furniture designer Normand Couture won two awards in two distinct categories in this year's Pinnacle Design Achievement Awards competition, organized by the American Society of Furniture Designers (ASFD).

This is the second straight year in which Couture has received the accolade. He also won in 2007. Based in Montreal, he is the founder and principal designer for Couture International and Couture Jardin, an outdoor furniture specialist.

Winning the Pinnacle Awar
Winning the Pinnacle Award in the stationary upholstery category was Evasion, designed by Normand Couture for Couture International.

His first award was in the stationary upholstery category for the Evasion sectional created for Couture International.

In their comments, the judges' noted: "The versatility of the Evasion sectional from Couture International makes this frame a winner in the stationary upholstery category. Suitable for placement indoors or outdoors, the components can be arranged in a wide range of configurations. The relaxed styling also carries a reasonable price point."

The second award was for the Embrace sectional which was entered in the competition's ‘summer/casual' categories on behalf of Couture Jardin.

"The flexibility of the modular elements in the Embrace sectional gives Couture Jardin top marks in the summer and casual category," the judges remarked. "The innovative combination of materials and colors exudes a look with superior comfort."

In all, the ASFD presented awards in 16 furniture, accessories and lighting categories. The awards were presented at the fall 2011 edition of the High Point Market, which ended its six-day run here two weeks ago.
