Outstanding design in 15 categories

The most important areas in furnishing are reflected in the BEST OF DESIGN categories, because we want to provide orientation and a comprehensive market overview with the BEST OF DESIGN award. We are currently awarding furniture in the following categories:

  • Sofas
  • Armchairs
  • Side tables
  • Chairs
  • Upholstered chairs
  • Dining tables
  • Shelves & Sideboards
  • Beds

  • Bathroom
  • Home office
  • Home accessories

Together, the disciplines provide a comprehensive overview of innovative, groundbreaking and high-quality furnishings, which design-oriented readers can use as a basis for their purchasing decisions.

Manufacturers can submit their products for evaluation. In addition, the SCHÖNER WOHNEN editorial team also selects products that have caught their attention during their research.

In the BEST OF DESIGN selection, the editors do not only evaluate the design. They also include aspects such as sustainability, ergonomics or functionality of the products. The evaluations are based on many years of expertise by our renowned editors.

For reasons of neutrality, furniture from the SCHÖNER WOHNEN collection is not included in the evaluation.
