DALLAS-Emporium Home will receive the Rising Star Award at the 25th annual ARTS Awards on Saturday, Jan. 18 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel, the Dallas Market Center announced. Founded by Ashley Childers and based in Little Rock, Ark., Emporium Home offers high-style furniture, lighting, home decor and more, hand crafted by traditional artisans.

The Rising Star Award recognizes innovation and modern excellence demonstrated by a home industry company that has been in business less than three years and is selected by a committee of industry peers.

"We're pleased to pay tribute to Emporium Home, which has quickly made its mark on the home industry with its high-quality, fashion-forward designs," said Bill Winsor, president and CEO, Dallas Market Center. "We look forward to honoring the company and its achievements at the ARTS Awards gala."

The ARTS Awards, developed by the nonprofit ART and produced by Dallas Market Center, is an annual international awards program for the home industry that honors designers, manufacturers, retailers and sales representatives. Held each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market, the black-tie gala is attended by nearly 700 industry leaders.
