Randy Kohrs wins design award

The award winning booth at Randy Kohrs' studioRandy Kohrs is probably best known for his fantastic dobro playing and high tenor singing. He also has some notoriety as a producer and recording engineer. But now he’s winning awards for design, no not graphic design, upholstery design!

The June/July issue of Upholstery Journal announces the winners of the 2007 Design & Craftsmanship Awards. Randy won top honors (platinum) for the design of a set of ’63 Chevy booth seats in the “green room” of his studio.

The green room resembles an old style dinner complete with black and white floor tiles and the award winning booth which has built speakers between the seats.

Randy only takes co-design credit for the booth seats. Raul Rodriguez is the designer Randy worked with on the project.

The best part of winning this award is that now Randy has an award winning studio!
