"The Young Furniture Makers Bespoke Award recognises excellence and craftsmanship in the creation of a bespoke piece of furniture or furnishing related product intended for one-off or very limited production. The Young Furniture Makers Awards are instantly recognisable by industry insiders as being the junior version of the prestigious Furniture Makers Guild Marks."
The competition was open to current students and recent graduates in the UK, with the top three entries invited to the Young Furniture Makers exhibition. There I was presented with the award and a set of power tools from Festool.

During the prize giving I was presented with the Young Furniture Makers Bespoke Award, and a set of Festool power tools.
The best designs from the Bespoke and Design Awards were invited to exhibit alongside high quality pieces from BA, MA, and Furniture making courses.
I am very pleased to announce that the Lilo Bench won joint Best of Show, with the prize of an all expenses paid trip to the state of the art Blum facilities in Austria!
