Casual Industry Names Manufacturer Leadership Award Finalists

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Five manufacturers of outdoor furnishings have been named finalists for the International Casual Furnishings Association’s 2019 Manufacturer of the Year Award.

The five companies were selected for ICFA’s Manufacturer Leadership Award after online nominations in August among ICFA’s membership. The honorees include: Jensen Leisure Furniture, Lloyd Flanders, O.W. Lee, Telescope Casual Furniture and Treasure Garden.

The finalists were selected based on the overall design and quality of their products, along with their merchandising, customer service, ethics, communications and trade relations. Company profiles of the finalists were distributed to ICFA members for a second round of voting, and the company with the most votes will be announced at the ICFA Awards Gala on Wednesday, September 11, at the Hilton Chicago.

The September 11 ICFA Awards Gala will bring together all segments of the outdoor furnishings industry to recognize and celebrate top retail stores, manufacturers and sales representatives. Products receiving the industry’s Design Excellence Awards will be spotlighted, along with the two Lilly Awards for Outdoor Furniture and Outdoor Accents, plus the Lillian B. Winchester “Best of Show” design award.
