We have some very exciting news to share with you all and we can’t wait to tell you more! Last night, Cassie and I went off to the big city for the House Beautiful Awards Ceremony at the Science Museum. We had been nominated for an award in the ‘Best Lighting Category.’

We were greeted with drinks and canapes and mingled amongst the other guests. It was a star-studded event and we even spotted Alan Titchmarsh talking to Mary Berry.
We were then directed through to the theatre where the awards were going to be given. We eagerly awaited for our category to come up. There were some fantastic winners in some of the other categories.  Our particular favourites were Thornback and Peel who won the ‘Best Furniture’ Award with their collaboration with We also loved the winners of the ‘Best Fabric’ category: Wabi Sabi with their 2013 collection.

We were quite nervous as  we were up against some pretty big names.When John Lewis with their House Tony Lighting Range wereawarded Silver, the excitement was mounting. As they read out the Gold winner, all Cassie and I heard was ‘integrated LED technology’ before we were squealing in delight.

So without further ado, Jim Lawrence won Gold in the House Beautiful’s Awards for Best Lighting Category with our Boathouse Outside Wall Light.
