Austrian fittings manufacturer Blum sponsored the Best in Show prize at the Young Furniture Makers – YFM – exhibition, which is held by furnishing industry charity The Furniture Makers' Company.

Connor Holland and Jan Waterston – pictured left and centre respectively alongside Blum technical support adviser Peter Sharratt – were both awarded the Best in Show prize, and have won an all-expenses-paid trip to Blum's factory in Austria.

Holland was awarded the prize for his YFM Bespoke Lilo bench, while Waterston won for his Velo chair, which also gained second place in the YFM Bespoke Award.

“We are always eager to support young talent in our industry,” said Blum UK managing director Mark Richardson. “Blum has a long history of encouraging young people to make the most of their opportunities, and we are thrilled to be able to support this event for Young Furniture Makers.”

Furniture fittings manufacturer Crofts & Assinder also co-sponsored the Young Furniture Makers Design Award alongside design studio Gabbertas Studio. The award was won by Christa Sylvana Tjong.
