Robert Currey to Receive ARTS Academy of Achievement Award
October 12, 2015,
DALLAS–Robert Currey of Currey & Company will be honored with the Academy of Achievement award at the ARTS Awards this January. He was chosen by Dallas Market Center and the ARTS nominating committee.
“Robert Currey received an unprecedented number of nominations for Academy of Achievement this year from across the industry,” said Sharon Davis, executive director of ART. “After such strong endorsement, the committee agreed that he was the obvious choice.”
In 1988, Currey founded Garden Source Furnishings—now Currey & Company—to create and market classic garden furniture from the Winterthur Museum and the Smithsonian Institution. By the early 1990s the collection expanded to include lighting and a new focus for interior furnishings. Currey, a long-time innovator in the home furnishings industry, now runs a small sustainable market garden in Sparta, Georgia.
The ARTS Awards will be presented Jan. 22, 2016, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel, during Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.
