Furniture design outfit Deadgood has been recognised with one of the UK’s top interior design industry awards.

The Newcastle and London-based brand was named Furniture Manufacturer of the Year at the 10th anniversary Mixology15 awards – run by Mix Interiors magazine.

The awards celebrate designers, architects and consultants in the commercial interior sector who push the boundaries of style.

Deadgood team members collected their award in front of an audience of almost 1,000 at the awards night in London.

Elliot Brook, co-chief executive officer of Deadgood, said: “Our vision is to develop one of the world’s leading furniture design brands and it’s fantastic for us to have been recognised by the industry for our achievements and for the hard work we continue to put into building the Deadgood brand.”
