Bassett Mirror, Acquabella win Atlanta ‘People’s Choice’ awards
Atlanta Market participants have selected two home furnishings products as “People’s Choice” winners for the winter market, which runs through Jan. 16 at AmericasMart.
Bassett Mirror Co.’s Newport console and Acquabella’s Opal Quiz bathtub received the most votes for home furnishings products leading up to the show. Two companies in other categories also won: Mod Paper Lounge Co.’s green Geometric acrylic cocktail pick set and Ahmed Tea London’s Kew Garden tea caddies.
“From delightful entertaining accessories to heritage brand tea to bathtubs crafted from innovative materials (to) design-driven accent furniture, the Winter 2023 Market Snapshot winners represent the discovery opportunities that are a hallmark of Atlanta Market,” said Dorothy Belshaw, chief customer officer for International Market Centers. “We congratulate the winners and finalists, which represent some of the best of the full lifestyle offerings of Atlanta Market.”
Bassett Mirror’s console is crafted from ash veneer in a sun-bleached finish. Thick, tapered legs are exposed through a marble tabletop. It’s part of the company’s Newport collection, which features pieces in a coastal modern style. (The company can be found in Building 1, 11-F11.)
Acquabella says its freestanding Opal Quiz bathtub with geometric design is the first tub offered in the U.S. market crafted from Akron, a compound of polyurethane and mineral fillers compacted to achieve a solid finish. It is available in black, brown, dark gray, light gray and white finishes. (Building 1, 15-D11)
