Bristol Life Awards – We won!
by Olga Alexandru
In case you’ve been hiding out for the last couple of weeks and missed the big news: we won for Best Interiors at the Bristol Life Awards!
This awards means so much to us for so many reasons. This was a Bristol specific award so it felt extra special. Having our business based in Bristol is so important to us. We use local suppliers whenever possible, we donate our scraps to a local charity and we have two showrooms in Bristol. Bristol is where we work, play and dream. Bristol is our community and as such this award felt extra sweet for us. We love contributing to this vibrant city and it was an honour to be amongst the best the city has to offer.
Our Director and Co-Founder Sam attended the awards ceremony with his partner Sarah. We interviewed him about the night to find out what his highlights were (besides winning of course!):
A gorgeous marquee in the heart of the Bristol Harbourside Sam loved the decor and said it felt ‘uber glam’. The music was a delight with its blend of Gypsy and Jazz.
Mark Watson had everyone in stitches! Masterfully moving between hosting and cracking jokes he made the night extra fun.
The main course of slow cooked lamb with local, seasonal veg was a particular highlight for Sam who couldn’t stop raving about delicious it was. And with food comes drink! Sam thoroughly enjoyed the Prosecco…maybe a bit too much by his own account 😛
Sam made a couple of new friends at the table: Andrew and Steven from The Cosmic Shed, a science based podcast and Rich from Fresh Range, an online shop selling local produce. The conversation was flowing it seemed fortuitous they were sat together.
And just for fun here is Sam’s excited face:
The Bristol Life Awards were amazing! Thank you so much for this award. It means so much to us! We can’t wait to do it all again next year. Roll on 2018!
