Housewares Design Awards Names 2019 Finalists

The finalists are in for the 2019 Housewares Design Awards.

Winners will be announced Tuesday, January 29, at the 14th Housewares Design Awards Celebration during the 2019 winter Las Vegas Market.

Founded in 2003 by HOMEWORLD BUSINESS®, sister publication of Gourmet Insider, to honor supplier efforts within the industry to create new ways to improve everyday living, the Housewares Design Awards recognize design excellence in 13 categories— 11 core housewares categories, an expanded “Smart Home” category and a new “Gourmet Specialty Foods” category sponsored by Gourmet Insider. All finalists will be recognized during the awards ceremony; and the first annual Design Innovation of the Year will be revealed, selected from the 11 core “Best in Category” winners.

The awards ceremony also will also feature the presentation of the third “Design Influencer of the Year” award.

Housewares Design Awards finalists were chosen by a team of nine designers, retailers and design educators who met in Las Vegas to test, review and rate the products based on four criteria: appropriate aesthetics; innovative materials and technology; user benefits (performance, comfort, ease of use, safety); and marketability.

The Las Vegas Market will host a networking reception from 5 to 6 p.m. on C11 (the 11th floor of showroom building C) of the World Market Center Las Vegas against the backdrop of a special display spotlighting the 2019 finalist products. The awards ceremony will follow from 6 to 7:15 p.m. Tickets, which include specialty cocktails and a dessert buffet, are $25 per person, and may be purchased online at:

The 2019 Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business, hosted by the Las Vegas Market and sponsored by Whitford Corporation. The winter Las Vegas Market runs January 27 to 31, 2019.
