There’s design, and then there’s good design. Last year, Domino editors looked at over hundreds—maybe thousands?!—of products to unearth the very best in home design, from furniture to lighting to appliances. (There was even a very chic hamster bed!) We’re back at it for 2023, so here’s everything you need to know to submit your newest launches to our annual celebration of good design.

About the Domino Good Design Awards

The Domino Good Design Awards launched in 2022 to recognize the year’s very best in home products, from decor and furniture to lighting and textiles. We bring our eagle-eyed editors together with an expert panel of guest editors (last year’s included Leanne Ford, Jeremiah Brent, and Carmeon Hamilton) to discuss, deliberate, and sometimes debate the winners across seven categories. And we’re ready to do it all over again.

The Judging Process

We will carefully consider every product entered, although the judges may also consider products that have not been formally entered. We will narrow down the entries to produce a list of potential winners for each category based on criteria including form and functionality, quality of materials, care and maintenance, innovativeness in the category, and how the product makes life easier. From these lists, the judges will choose one winner per category. We will contact you for additional information and product samples as needed. The total number of winners in each category is flexible and based on merit. Judging is final and confidential. There is no connection between advertising in Domino and winning these awards.
