The winner of the Bedroom Category in The Furniture Awards 2018 was Wiemann UK, for Cayenne.
After Nolte Möbel scooped first place in this category last year, fellow German bedroom furniture specialist Wiemann took the top spot, its reputation for reliable service and top-quality product reinforcing the judges’ decision.
Its entry was Cayenne, a stylish dual-depth wardrobe range that offers consumers the ability to create a strong design statement while maximising available bedroom space.
Designed to look and function like fully-fitted furniture but with a freestanding furniture price tag, Cayenne, part of Wiemann’s upmarket VIP collection, is available in a choice of three carcass colours, six door finishes and two heights, and features soft-closing doors as standard, plus optional LED interior lighting and additional storage facilities.
Wiemann’s continued strong performance in the UK is driven by its exclusive distributor Litmus Furniture, which is trusted by a growing number of stockists to deliver on-trend designs, installed to high standards.
The judges said: “This market sector is full of flat models without any shape, so Cayenne really stands out – it could probably be sold based on its looks alone, and it lends itself to so many room configurations.”
