Best Home Furnishings Captures Three Furniture Today Reader Ranking Awards
FERDINAND, IN. – Best Home Furnishings closes out its 60 year anniversary on a high note after capturing three prestigious Reader Ranking Awards from Furniture Today Magazine. The company has been named Best Motion Sofa Supplier and Best Recliner Supplier for 2022, and additionally, was a finalist in the category of Best Accent Chair Supplier. A peer-recognition program, the Reader Ranking Awards began in 2021 and have quickly gained momentum with expanded categories this year. More than 17,000 Furniture Today reader votes were tallied in 2022 among the industry’s 28 categories represented.
“Receiving this recognition from our valued partners is truly an honor,” says Brian Lange, president of Best Home Furnishings. “For the past 60 years, Best has strived to represent what our name stood for – and along the way we have forged strong relationships with our customers. These special awards acknowledge our efforts in creating exceptional American-made products that in turn, enhance our partners’ profitability. To know that the industry values our business principles is inspiring for our entire team.”
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.”
