A highlight of this year’s Furnishing in Focus show was the announcement of Warwick Fabrics annual Vice Award.

First presented in 1993 to Graeme Cock, the award continues, to this day, in acknowledging worthy recipients for their contribution to the Australian furniture industry.

The 2016 recipient, Carol Arnold, wife of Kevin and mother of Clayton and Michael of Dankz Furniture in Western Australia, received the award on behalf of the family business.

Dankz was established over 48 years ago and has continued to contribute to that State’s manufacturing and retail furniture industry ever since.
