Neocon 2017 / by Manuel F. Valencia

Held each summer at The Mart in Chicago, NeoCon is one of the most recognized and attended conferences and design expositions in the commercial interiors industry. The show is focused on being at the forefront of changing commercial design and business trends. As a leading distributor of commercial design products, Carpenter Smith Southwest is at the epicenter of what’s happening. Our brands took home a total of 10 awards this June. Here are some highlights.

HALCON was the biggest star, winning the Best of Competition and 2 Gold Awards for the new HALO series of conference room furniture. The mix-and-match components allows you to create a solution perfectly-tailored to your unique meeting space.


HBF Textiles won 3 awards for their innovative collection designed by Elodie Blanchard. The Raw Materials collection aims to make the office feel like a ‘second home’ as opposed to a corporate environment. The collection won a Best of NeoCon Silver Award, an Interior Design HiP Award, and a #MetropolisLikes Award.

Come see us at the annual MetroCon Conference and Exposition at Dallas Market Hall on August 10 and 11, 2017 to see more of our great brands!
