Our awards mean the world to us. In 2015 we made the decision to put ourselves out there and started entering for a few awards. Awards are a fabulous way to gain accolades for Newtons and rewards all the hard work put in by members of our team. They are a also a good indication of what we are doing right and highlighting want we can do better. By entering them we scrutinise our business in the minutest detail. This enables us to constantly improve not only the service we offer but also the usability and look of our website to give you a better shopping experience.
For the second year running we have been awarded Highly Commended by The Good Web Guide website of the years Awards. These awards put innovation and online excellence at the top of their agenda with the judges putting websites through their paces testing each one for award winning qualities. We are over the moon to have received a Highly Commended in the Homes & Interiors category for both 2015 and 2016.
In 2016 we were also nominated by a lovely member of the public (it could have been you) in the Amara Interior Blog Awards. Over the moon find ourselves as one the final five interiors companies on the shortlist for 2016 is an understatement. The Amara Interior Blog Awards are the Oscars of the interior blogging community. To make it to the shortlist on our first attempt is truly amazing.
Theo Paphitis is a well known and loved entrepreneur who admires people who have passion and energy. He says, ''If you cannot bore your friends to death about your own business then something is seriously wrong''. Well we know just how he feels. And we're sure we have unknowingly left friends rigid with boredom on more than one occasion. In 2016 we were lucky enough to win Theo Paphitis #SBS Award. The #SBS winners are a great group of businesses. We love being part of the ever growing and supportive SBS family.
We are also a member of a great directory, Style The Home. This directory is jam packed full of handpicked independent companies from the interiors sector. And we have happily been a member since 2015. Style The Home chooses businesses for their exclusivity and uniqueness. As an interiors resource Style The Home is invaluable. It helps you to create one of a kind interiors. Allowing your home to be truly unique.
