Land of Beds flew the flag for the furniture industry at this year's National Family Business of The Year Awards, held at Wembley Stadium.

The awards recognise best-in-class family businesses in sectors ranging from technology to manufacturing.

Land of Beds was awarded the silver award in the retail category. The judging panel praised the third-generation family business for its impressive sales and profit growth over the last few years, and its ability to transition into a leading multichannel retailer.

MD Mike Murray says: "I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last few years. I would like to dedicate this award to all our incredibly hard-working and dedicated team who consistently go above and beyond. They’re our extended family, and without them we wouldn’t be where we are today. Being in a family business gives you the confidence and freedom to constantly try out new ideas. It allows you to innovate and take measured risks, because you know you can rely 100% on the team around you.

"We are a third-generation family business and I am extremely excited to see what the future holds for this great company as we transition into our next phase of growth."
