The British Design Awards

British design awards - Elle Deco

It’s time to get voting for this year’s British Design Awards! This year ELLE Decoration, (in association with John Lewis, the Times magazine and Decorex International), have cherry picked some incredibly talented designers for you to admire. Each designer has been nominated within one of five categories alongside John Lewis’ ‘Made in the UK’ award, which champions home grown manufacturing.

John Lewis have also created a stunning Infographic which you can see in full here. It’s especially useful if you are a design student, or someone wishing to improve their knowledge of design classics, as the Infographic chronicles iconic furniture designs from the 1930’s onwards. It also includes some interesting additional information on each designer.

You can see the shortlisted designers and have a chance to vote for your favourite here.

Don’t forget, the London Design Festival runs from the 14th – 22nd of September this year. If you want to get involved, ELLE Decoration have an app which enables you to see what’s going on in areas across London in celebration of the design awards.

Let me know any design favourites that you have in the comments section below. I’ll be sharing more of my personal favourites over the next few weeks.
