Elliotts employee wins Designer of the Year award

Elliotts Living Spaces Designer Emma Knight has been crowned ‘Sottini Showroom Designer of the Year’ after her 3D bathroom design was selected by a judging panel made up of leading industry experts.

Scooping the £2,000 prize, the Lymington-based bathroom designer was praised for successfully combining style and innovation.

Sottini ran the competition to find the nation’s pride of showroom design, in partnership with Virtual Worlds.

Steve Breen, Sottini Sales Director, commented: “The aim of this competition was to reward and acknowledge the talents of the UK’s finest designers who continue to go the extra mile. The standard of designs submitted was testament to the talent and hard work of the designers who dedicate thousands of hours to creating truly stunning showrooms.”

Entrants had to submit their design proposals in a 3D format, to include all key elements of the bathroom, with an ethos on creating an inspiring and innovative design.

It received a fantastic response from the Designer community across the UK, with a final shortlist of 20 entries considered by judges.

The judging panel was made up of industry experts from Barratt Homes, Potton Homes, Millwood Designer Homes, Colemore Tang and Conran Design, as well as Virtual Worlds, Ideal Standard and EKBB magazine.

Winning bathroom designer Emma Knight said: “I love my job, so I am absolutely thrilled to have won this award and really enjoyed creating the design for the competition.

“The split levels allow the stylish products to stand out against a stunning back drop, as well as increasing the sense of space – I can imagine relaxing for hours in this bathroom!

“My manager, Andrew, gives me great support and I’ve learnt so much from him. Winning this award has given me inspiration and increased confidence to do more fabulous designs for our customers at Elliotts Living Spaces.

“It was such a privilege to have my work recognised by some of the leading names in the industry and meet them at the awards ceremony in London. I also enjoyed wearing a virtual reality headset and getting to ‘walk through’ my winning design!”
