Earlier this week, KL Communications and Rockler Woodworking announced that Geoffrey Warner Studio is a 5th Annual Mid-Atlantic Fine Furnishings Show – Best in Show award recipient.
A panel of Baltimore area industry professionals reviewed the show’s talented exhibitors, their work, and booth layouts to select the finalists in nine categories. Warner received the prestigious Marc Harrison Award for Marketing Excellence. The judges were particularly impressed by Warner’s advertisements. “The Owl Collection ads are whimsical and capture the spirit of the product.”
When interviewed, Geoff Warner replied “We are thrilled with this honor. I have a passion for humor and enjoyed the process of designing the original Owl Stool as well as working with my team to create the messaging that all of our Owl Furniture is both fun and comfortable.”
Geoffrey Warner Studio is located in Stonington, Maine. Their owlfurniture.com website also illustrates their life-is-fun attitude– even the names of their base colors are whimsical: Big Smile Red, Night Owl Black and Lobstah Orange are a few examples!
One of the Show’s banner image depicts Geoff’s student’s at the Stonington Stone Cutter Statue after a workshop class–how often can a piece of furniture double as a mask!
The Show judges included Phil Adams, ASID, CID of Floors Etc., Catherine Mallette of Chesapeake Home + Living Magazine, and Jeffrey A. Penza, AIA, LEED AP of Penza Bailey Architects.
