Luxury in the Making
On Monday 20th November evening, 400 industry creatives, executives and influencers gathered at The Dorchester in Mayfair for the annual Walpole British Luxury Awards to celebrate Britain’s luxury brands and individuals as well as those who define the exciting creativity, innovation and global cultural relevance of Great Britain.
This is what Walpole's CEO Helen Brocklebank had to say about the 'luxury in the making' award of which we the grateful winners!
"After an unprecedented number of entries for the ‘Made in the UK’ award, the awards panel couldn’t ignore the number of brands committed to artisanal making, craft skills and investment in people outside of London. That inspired a new award, ‘Luxury in the Making’, which was presented to Lincolnshire based furniture and lighting company Matthew Cox, whose designs has won it a slew of celebrity fans and which has British-made hardwired into its mission statement. Investment over the past year in two new metalworking workshops, as well as helping to safeguard craft skills in this country by accommodating numerous work experience placements and apprenticeships secured this inaugural award."
