The sixth edition of The Furniture Awards, which took place at this year’s January Furniture Show, saw exhibiting hopefuls put their best foot (well, new range) forward in a bid to be crowned best in class. Securing the top spot in the Bedroom Cabinet category for a third straight year was Wiemann UK …
With an unprecedented third straight win, Wiemann further reinforced its position as an undisputed leader in bedroom furniture supply.
Its entry, Glasgow, is a flexible, design-rich contemporary collection which features a new finish (matt glass) plus smart contrasting handles and trims.
With a fitted look but a freestanding price tag, Glasgow caters for various demands, offering hinged, sliding and combi-wardrobe options plus corner units and beds, to help maximise bedroom storage space.
“Glasgow demonstrates Wiemann’s ongoing investment and commitment to creating high-quality, design-focused products that ooze functionality and represent great value for money,” says Wiemann’s UK/Ireland export sales manager, Kai Schwenke. “Thank you very much for this award (again!) – it’s a huge achievement for us and Wiemann.”
Simon Hewitt, MD of Litmus Furniture, Wiemann’s agent for the UK and Ireland, adds: “We’re delighted to again be celebrating excellent results in The Furniture Awards. We’re now looking forward to capitalising on our success.”
The judges said: “Wiemann’s hat-trick is well deserved. As usual, their entry is attractive, well-priced, innovative, robust and space conscious, but Glasgow’s lovely contemporary matt glass finish takes it a step beyond. Incredibly tactile and inviting, we’re expecting to see this finish popping up everywhere in the next couple of years, and Wiemann have given it a great headstart.”
