Gold Idea Design Awards

Co-hosted by China National Furniture Association, Shanghai Sinoexpo Informa Markets International Exhibition Co., Ltd. and ELLE DECORATION, Gold Idea Furniture Design Award (hereafter referred to as “GIDA”) aims at a world-class furniture design award, or the equivalent of “Red Dot Award" in China.

Since its inception five years ago, GIDA has received a total of 1,547 works from 546 enterprises, recognized as an important award by Furniture China. With the aim of transforming China’s furniture industry from “made in China” to “intelligent manufacturing in China”, GIDA supports China’s design and helps it establish a reputation in the international arena. While focusing on the spirit of “originality”, Gold Idea Award places higher emphasis on brands and designers using traditional elements and conventional techniques, making clear the position of Furniture China that it promotes and supports the original design in China.
