Homes & Gardens Designer Awards 2016


We saw the latest and greatest of the design world recently come together for the annual Homes & Gardens Designer Awards ceremony, hosted at the iconic British Museum.  Our Decorex team attended, along with a host of influential designers, industry insiders and the expert judging panel, celebrating the best designers in the industry.

We were particularly delighted that Sebastian Cox, alongside deVOL, was the recipient of the Kitchen Designer award.  As a Future Heritage alum, who is also took part in our 2016 #Decorexshoot, he was awarded for his use of traditional craftsmanship and sustainable British wood.
