Over 140 young designers entered this year’s New Design Britain Awards for the chance to have their designs and products displayed at INTERIORS UK 2012 and win a placement with a leading industry supplier.
Last week, a panel of top industry judges gathered together to study the entrants’ work in detail and selected their favourite designers to go through to the final.
There are now 16 finalists across four categories – fabrics, furniture, surface coverings and furnishing accessories. The work of all the finalists will be exhibited at INTERIORS UK 2012.

The 16 finalists are:
FABRICS: Colleen Ellington, Joy Herman, Penny Seume, Laura Daley
FURNITURE: Greg Parsell, James Uren, Lucy Alice Porter, Liam Treanor
SURFACE COVERINGS: Rachel Hagger, Wendy Braithwaite, Yuri Menechelli, Ying Mu
FURNISHING ACCESSORIES: Liam Treanor, Lucy Alice Porter, Sophie Adamson, Roland Beaven

This is an opportunity to cover a chair in my fabric, test my idea of doing placement furniture fabrics. My blog has been quite as my camera was broken and I have had all manor of problems with fabric that has not arrived, finally sorted with a lighter weight velvet than I wanted to but time is running out...

Sculpture for hospital commission is now finally done and delivered so one more thing of the list!
