Crossville, Inc. recently chose the winners for the 2016 The Common Thread for the Cure scarf design contest, a biennial competition held in support of the nonprofit organization that provides practical support for members of the furnishings and interior design industries facing the challenges of breast cancer.
“We received lots of entries this year, so it’s really exciting to see how the voting turned out,” said Robin Rhea, Crossville’s director of brand marketing. “We appreciate how our network of distributors and the interior design and tile industry communities rallied to show their creativity in support of this great cause.”
This year’s competition included a Judges’ Choice winner, selected by a panel of interior design professionals from different regions of the U.S., as well as the People’s Choice winner determined by popular vote.
Both of the winning designs are being produced as scarves available through Crossville distributors in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The scarf competition is just one of the ways that Crossville carries out its commitment to raising awareness of breast cancer and offering help to those in the industry who are struggling with the disease. Since 2007, Crossville has donated more than $75,000 to The Common Thread for the Cure.
