This week, we are off to Grand Designs Live at the NEC in Birmingham to seek out more great designs to bring you on the Great British Designs website!

 

We really love this aspect of our work - going out and meeting the designers face-to-face, finding out about their products and their story. We always want to bring you designers who not only have great skill and inspirational designs, but share our ethos of sustainability and the use of locally-sourced materials, and delight in high quality craftsmanship.

 

We are extremely proud that one of our designers, John Green, won the Highly Commended Award in the Grand Designs Product of the Year 2011 category, for the fabulous John Green Embrace Table


 

John Green accepts Grand Designs Award from Kevin McCloud for Embrace Table

 

 

John Green's Embrace Table was described as an example of simple, attractive design - it consists of two interlocking pieces which together form a table and storage unit, but separately they can form a child's seat and desk!

 

Congratulations to John Green on his fantastic achievement  - see the Embrace Table here...


We hope to find other inspirational designers at Grand Designs Live at Birmingham NEC when we go on Friday! The show is on from 7-9 October - see the details on the official Grand Designs Live website.

 

If you can't make it to the show - check out our site for the best in Great British Design!
