TORRANCE, Calif., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Mary Jurek Design, Inc. received the Award for Design Excellence (ADEX) for multiple products in 2014.

In order to be given an ADEX Award, a company's product must display excellent design elements marketed to the design trade. Receiving these awards only comes after an incredible amount of time and effort has been put into perfecting the design of the finished product. The highest honor given to an entry is a Platinum award, followed by a Gold award and then a Silver award.

In 2014, the ADEX Awards had a record breaking 2,852 products entered into the competition. Over 500 companies submitted pieces from their interior design collections to be judged.

Mary Jurek Design, Inc. received both Platinum and Silver awards for five of their products and furnishings entered into competition.

In the Home - Decorative Accessories - Interior - Tabletop - Salt & Pepper category, Mary Jurek Design, Inc. won a Platinum award for their Sierra Salt & Pepper Set. This salt & pepper set received the award for its ability to seamlessly marry contemporary stainless steel shakers with a romantic rosewood holder.

Here, the Mary Jurek Design, Inc.'s Kenya Indian Rosewood Pillar Candle Holder with Crocodile Pattern won the award. This product stood above the competition with its rich, dark wood fused with crocodile pattern embossed stainless steel.
