Gallery’s recent focus on quality and traditional manufacturing capabilities has paid dividends. Their updated Hudson Living fusion furniture, based on classic styles, has been seen as a real winner. At the prestigious Furniture Awards, judged during the January Furniture Show in Birmingham, the Hudson Living Dexter Side Tables and accompanying range won the Mid-Level Category, standing out from their peers.James Hudson, Business Development Director at Gallery Direct, was responsible with his team, along with Mat Penney’s design concept directive, for creating this simple but on design side table that offers either a parquet or faux concrete resin top. Manufactured to the highest standards, echoing the workmanship of his grandfather and father, the Dexter table epitomises the spirit and direction that Gallery is taking in the furniture market.
James commented “The concept behind the Dexter side tables was to create a statement piece that could enhance the feel of different room settings, using high quality materials and traditional carpentry techniques. The simplicity of the design, we feel, speaks for itself, and this was backed up by the judges’ comments that it is on trend, well-proportioned and likely to stand the test of time”.
As well as winning the Furniture Award, Gallery also took the January Furniture Show by storm with their stunning double decker stand plus additional space – the two stands with their array of over 1000 products were the talk of the show. The extensive range of high quality new items was extremely well received by both customers and industry commentators alike.
Overall the show was an outstanding success for Gallery. Peter Delaney, Managing Director, commented “The whole team put in a tremendous amount of time and effort preparing for the show, but it was all worth it. We wrote record orders and we are delighted to have won the Furniture Award 2015 Mid-Level Category for our Dexter Side Tables and accompanying range from our Hudson Living collection.”
