FERDINAND, IN. – The readers of a leading industry publication have spoken, and Best Home Furnishings captured three prestigious Reader Ranking Awards from Furniture Today Magazine. The company has been named Best Custom Upholstery Supplier and for the second year in a row, Best Recliner Supplier. Additionally, Best was named a finalist in the category of Best Domestic Upholstery Company. A peer-recognition program, the Reader Ranking Awards began in 2021 and have quickly gained momentum with expanded categories this year with nearly 60 categories represented.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by our dealers, customers and peers in receiving these honors,” says Brian Lange, president of Best Home Furnishings. “To highlight these facets of our company pays tribute not only to our entire team, but spotlights our successful strategies and efforts in creating exceptional American-made products while providing customers diverse choices and delivering in top lead times – all while enhancing our partners’ profitability. To know that the industry values our business principles is inspiring to the people of Best Home Furnishings.”
Sponsored by Furniture Today, the leading voice for all facets of the industry, the Reader Ranking program is a months-long, multi-step voting system culminating in winners being revealed in early December. The first step is the nomination process, where readers can nominate manufacturers or service providers they believe are outstanding in their field. Once nominations are closed the top 10 vote getters enter the next phase of the program, where another round of voting takes place. Anticipation then grows for the winners and the top two finalists in each category to be revealed in a presentation in print and online.
As Bill McLoughlin, Editor-in-Chief of Furniture Today explains, “Companies that are nominated for Reader Ranking Awards and who win can bring important attention to their business, attracting new customers and getting an edge in employee recruitment. At a time when companies are looking for critical competitive advantages, this program is a way for them to separate themselves from the pack.”
