HOW ARE THE EDIDA WINNERS SELECTED?
Every edition of ELLE DECORATION independently puts forward its suggestions across 15 categories, from fabrics and flooring to furniture, kitchens and bathrooms. Then, from this massive global shortlist, each Editor in Chief nominates their preferred winners. The votes are collated at the Paris headquarters of ELLE Decoration International, and the winners announced during Milan's Salone del Mobile furniture fair. In addition to the international EDIDA, some of the editions also organize local EDIDA events in their respective countries – each one with its specific selection process and event format.
