Five manufacturers of outdoor furnishings have been named as finalists for the International Casual Furnishings Assn.’s (ICFA) 2020 Manufacturer of the Year Award.

Nominated through online forms, this year’s honorees include Lloyd Flanders, O.W. Lee, Telescope Casual Furniture, Treasure Garden and Tropitone.

Finalists were selected based on the overall design and quality of their products, along with their merchandising, customer service, ethics, communication and trade relations. Company profiles of the finalists were distributed to ICFA members for a second round of voting, and the company with the most votes will be announced at the virtual ICFA Awards Gala on Wednesday, Sept. 23.

During the awards, products receiving the industry’s Design Excellence Awards will be spotlighted, along with the two Lilly Awards for Outdoor Furniture and Outdoor Accents, plus the Lillian B. Winchester Best of Show design award.
