Wiemann scores hat-trick industry award
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.”
