Three Awards For Brown Jordan At ICFA

Brown Jordan received three prestigious design excellence awards from the International Casual Furnishings Association (ICFA) at this year’s International Casual Furniture and Accessories Market, including the Lillian B. Winchester Best of Show award for the Flight Woven Adjustable Chaise. Brown Jordan’s Kantan II Lounge Chair won the ICFA Design Excellence award in the Tubular Materials category.

Chris Carmicle, President of Brown Jordan comments, “The International Casual Furniture Market is a premier event in the casual furnishings industry and we are truly humbled by these honors. These awards are a testament to our commitment to the Brown Jordan legacy of innovation in design and materials. We take pride in continuing to offer the best in timeless design as we expand our portfolio to attract new consumers and meet new markets worldwide.”

This is the seventh time Brown Jordan has received the Lillian B. Winchester Best of Show award, which is selected from among the eleven category winners.

The competition, sponsored by the International Casual Furnishings Association, recognizes products for quality of design as well as marketability, innovation, color, and imaginative use of materials. Selected to win the top award in the “Woven” category and ultimately the “Best of Show” award from over 100 product entries, the Flight Woven Adjustable Chaise features a striking mix of materials with a streamlined frame constructed of cast and extruded aluminum, and a seating element handwoven in Brown Jordan’s all-weather Resinweave®. Designed by John Caldwell, Flight is characterized by its simplicity and sophistication, offering a crisp and tailored look that speaks to today’s tastes.

Receiving the top award in the “Tubular Materials” category, Kantan II re-interprets a design originally created in 1956 by Tadao Inouye exclusively for Brown Jordan. Executed with a naturally lustrous brass frame and Brown Jordan’s proprietary Suncloth straps, the Kantan II Lounge Chair represents the enduring appeal of mid-century modern design concepts and Brown Jordan’s history of bringing new materials to market.
