Laura Ashley Kitchen Collection held its inaugural Stockist Awards to celebrate the launch of the collection and recognise the hard work of its retailers throughout the last 12 months.
The black-tie event took place at Cutlers Hall, in the heart of Sheffield to mark the occasion. Cutlers Hall provided the perfect backdrop for the ceremony as a Grade II listed building. Presenting a total of six awards on the night, retailers were asked to submit their entries, which included Best Display, Showroom of the Year, Online and Social Innovation, Designer of the Year and Stockist of the Year.
Each entry was considered by the panel of judges at Symphony who manufacture the Laura Ashley Kitchen Collection, with three finalists and an eventual winner being selected from each category.
Simon Collyns, Group Marketing & Retail Sales Director, said “We’re so pleased that the awards were such a success. We’ve received lots of great feedback and we look forward to incorporating our new Laura Ashley Fitted Bedrooms next year and making them bigger and better!”
