NY Now celebrated new product introductions across a variety of categories during its first Awards Night recently. In the Home Furnishings + Textiles section of the expo, the Best New Product winner was Pretty Rugged, which designs aesthetically pleasing blankets for outdoor use. Special mention went to Evangeline, manufacturer of heirloom quality blankets and throws; and LinenMe, producer of linen bedding, bath and table linens.

Hundreds of exhibitors entered the awards and one winner was chosen from each of the eleven sections within the Home, Lifestyle and Handmade Collections on display in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. “It’s gratifying to see the level of excitement and enthusiasm amongst exhibitors, celebrating each other’s successes and to see those innovative products being recognized by the industry as stand outs in their categories,” said Kevin O’Keefe, EVP of show Organizer Emerald Expositions. The winter 2020 edition of NY Now will take place from Feb. 1-5.
