Darien, Conn.–The 18th Annual Starnet Design Awards were held on April 15, 2016, in Miami, as one of the major highlights of Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership’s annual meeting, April 14-16.

The awards recognize creativity, professionalism, quality and versatility, and this year’s winners encapsulated the power of innovative and bold flooring installation in commercial interior design. From a critically acclaimed, environmentally conscious airport project to the renovation of a national treasure that plays host to astronauts and space-flight enthusiasts, the projects had judges and competitors seeing stars.

“Once again, we are awestruck and proud of the work done by Starnet Members throughout the country,” said Jeanne Matson, president and CEO of Starnet. “The Design Awards allow us to come together and recognize this talent and creativity. This year’s winners demonstrate to the entire industry that outstanding flooring design and craftsmanship can achieve amazing results in the commercial market. The awards also allow us to showcase the collaboration between our members, vendor partners and the A&D community. It’s a team effort that strengthens relationships and fosters innovation.”
