NEW YORK-Two companies were named recipients of the first-ever Best of Lifestyle and Best of Home awards at NY Now, which wrapped up here yesterday. Exhibitors mimish and Couture Dreams were selected via a peoples' choice online ballot which appeared on redclaydesign.com during market week.
"We tapped into the collective voices of our industry to identify which resources truly resonate with buyers and consumers alike," said Christian Falkenberg, NY Now director and senior vice president at GLM, which owns and operates the show. "From thousands of exciting new products featured at NY Now this summer, two stand-outs rose to the very top."

Couture Dreams of Wading River, N.Y., won the Best of Home award for its Chichi Throw, crafted from woven Chichi and available in ivory or flax. The Chichi Throw originally was selected as Best of Market in the Home Textiles Market Week Best New Product Awards.
The awards program was held in conjunction with Red Clay, a collaborative product design studio. Red Clay's online system enabled judges to review and select first round winners, and then allowed members of the trade, as well as consumers, to select final winners.
