Is it weird that we have a bumper sticker on our car that says: "Our ALEX Bottle won “Tabletop and Beverageware” in the prestigious 2011 Housewares Design Awards!"? We thought so too, but we just couldn't help ourselves. We're excited, proud, grateful and honored to have received something this awesome! Called “the Oscars of home design,” the Housewares Design Awards is the premier awards competition focused on the housewares industry. An independent panel of judges selected the ALEX Bottle as the winner based on superior design, appearance, function and originality. The Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business, with educational support from the International Housewares Association and sponsorship by the New York International Gift Fair®.
