World Interior News selected highlights from its fifth annual awards competition which recognizes interior design projects and products. The judges spent three weeks sorting through the 610 entries they received from all over the world and narrowed the pool down to 104. The list includes projects, products, and designs in 13 categories, ranging from furniture to interior accessories, and lighting products to workplace interiors. The next phase of the competition will involve narrowing down the shortlisted entries to one winning submission from each category.
“The fact that we are struggling to select just one winner is a testament to the standard of entries. It’s great to see such an impressive selection of work,” said WIN retail interiors judge Paul Hanegraaf, in a press release.
The winners of the World Interiors News Awards 2014 will be announced during an awards dinner at London’s Saatchi Gallery on October 30.
Here are some of the featured projects in the competition's shortlist.
