DALLAS-Mac Hoak, founder and owner of Mecox, will receive the prestigious Academy of Achievement honor at the 26th annual International ARTS Awards next January. Organized by Dallas Market Center and the Accessories Resource Team, the ARTS Awards are presented annually at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market. The Academy of Achievement honor is awarded annually to recognize companies and/or individuals that have made significant contributions to the industry.

"Under the guidance and vision of Mac, Mecox energized the home industry with its style and quality," said Bill Winsor, president and CEO, Dallas Market Center. "Mecox has been instrumental in setting precedent for retail excellence for the past 18 years, and we look forward to honoring Mac."

The first Mecox Gardens opened in 1996 in Southampton, N.Y. Now in eight locations nationwide, Mecox offers a unique selection of home and garden furnishings and has a loyal following of home owners, collectors and designers. Hoak and his team of buyers make multiple trips each year to venues around the world from which they source many of their antiques, home furnishings, art and other products. In addition, Mecox has a private label of furniture, which uses such indoor/outdoor materials as stone, zinc, concrete and teak. Mecox partners with local craftsman to allow customers to create their own designs or redesign any Mecox product.

The next ARTS Awards will be presented on Friday, Jan. 16, 2015, at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas.
