2023 Design Guild Mark winners announced

Design Guild Mark - May 16, 2023 - 0 comments

Thirty outstanding designs from three categories are to be awarded the coveted Design Guild Mark by The Furniture Makers’ Company in 2023.

The winning designers – some newcomers as well as previous holders – will be celebrated at a special awards ceremony on 23 May. The awarded designs – representing the domestic and contract markets – will benefit from increased industry and consumer awareness, press and social media coverage, with the designers and companies behind them also receiving enhanced brand recognition.

In addition to honouring the winners, the ceremony will include the announcement of winners of the Jonathan Hindle Prize. This additional award is selected by the judges and is presented to the most outstanding of the year’s Design Guild Mark awarded pieces and each recipient will receive a stunning trophy and a cash prize.

Rodney McMahon, chairman of the Design Guild Mark, said: “Meeting the applicants, hearing their design journey, and witnessing the friendly but insightful and probing questions of the judges is an enjoyable design master class. Designers should apply for the Design Guild Mark just for the experience of meeting the judges.”
