And the winner is…

We know you’re all on the edge of your seats, wondering who the “Best of Show” winner is for the New York Architectural Digest Home Design Show. The wait is finally over, the votes have been tallied, and the winner is…it’s a tie! Congratulations to The Grothouse Lumber Company and Ethan Allen for receiving the most comments and votes from show attendees, exhibitors, ECPR fans and media members on our blog page.

The Grothouse Lumber Company’s award-winning designs have been featured in a number of magazines, books and on one of our staff’s favorite television shows, “This Old House”. The company is most known for crafting wood sinks, fine custom wood countertops, butcher blocks, tables, and bar tops. With company owner and founder Paul Grothouse’s extensive knowledge and background in woodworking and engineering, it is no surprise this company was one of the front runners for the “Best of Show”. Visit for more information.

Ethan Allen’s five new signature lifestyles certainly made an impression on our readers and voters. The company’s new lifestyles, Romance, Modern, Vintage, Explorer, and Elegance each reflect a distinct design vision to stand apart from the crowd. Designed to help consumers choose their own interior design style preferences, Ethan Allen has created these new signature lifestyles to match various buyers’ personalities.

ECPR would like to thank all companies who submitted their products to be considered for the “Best of Show”. We were honored to be part of the New York Architectural Digest Home Design Show and hope to work with the show’s management team and exhibitors next year.
