The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) announced the winners of its 2017 Wood Floor of the Year contest during the the Opening Act held on Tuesday, April 11 of the Wood Flooring Expo in Phoenix. The Wood Floor of the Year Awards were developed to encourage and recognize innovative craftsmanship and design in wood flooring installations. Since the program began in 1990, more than 200 awards have been presented to NWFA member companies throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as in Russia and Finland.

This year’s Wood Floor of the Year Contest yielded 71 entries. All entries in the competition featured flooring installations completed between January 2016 and January 2017. A panel of judges comprised of trade and consumer press editors, industry leaders, and professional designers, evaluated the individual categories. The NWFA membership voted on all entries to recognize the Members’ Choice winner.
