BrightHouse has sponsored 580 design prizes to children in 290 secondary schools in the UK, with each winning pupil receiving a copy of Lesley Jackson's Modern British Furniture: Design Since 1945.
"These prizes reward hard work, ingenuity and talent and we hope that they will inspire a new generation of talent to enter our industry and make a positive impact on the products and furnishings that surround us in our homes, schools, public spaces and places of work." Jonny Westbrooke, Chief Executive and Clerk, The Furniture Makers' Company.
"Having this support from BrightHouse means we can reach out to schoolchildren and excite them about the wide range of careers within furnishing, helping to build a robust industry for the futures." Charles Vernon, Chairman of the Training & Education Committee.
