Can’t stop, won’t stop. Bell wins interior design awards and makes plans for expansion!
2016 was a year of great successes for Bell and we want to take the opportunity to thank all of our customers, suppliers and colleagues for making this possible. As well as growing our business and planning for an exciting expansion in 2017, we were entered in (and won!) a number of prestigious business awards.
We were delighted to be nominated for two SME awards for Northamptonshire, coming runner-up in the CIPD Employer of the Year category and winning the Barclays Business of the Year for 2016! We were also the recipient of Muddy Stilettos’ Interiors Award for best Interiors Store of the year! For this we must say a huge thank you to our customers and the friends of Bell who voted for us and who recognise the improvements we have made in creating such a great store.
We are now shortlisted in two categories for KBBReview’s 2017 Retail and Design Awards for both the Kitchen Retailer of the Year and Kitchen Showroom of the Year. Our design teams have worked tirelessly throughout the past year producing some unbelievable kitchens and these nominations are richly deserved.
On top of the daily business of producing mind-blowing interior design, the team at Bell has been working behind the scenes to bring new, innovative products and services to the showroom this year. We are delighted to announce that we have a planning application in the pipelines to convert part of the building into a 130-seat Italian restaurant, complete with built-in pizza oven and outdoor seating area. We are working with spectacular local chef, Carmela Sereno Hayes, who is famed for her Italian cooking and especially her handmade pasta.
This conversion comes as part of a huge development which will see Bell add even more services to its repertoire, including a delicatessen and gifting section with soft furnishings and skincare products. The Rose Gallery and Luxe Cookshop are also planning to expand their offer into the extended space and we are excited to continue working with them going forward.
Our aim is to offer everything you need (and a few things you just want!) to create your dream home under one roof. We are not only expanding our premises but we are also fully refurbishing our bathroom department and bringing in state-of-the-art fires and stoves brands that align with our luxury position in the market. We believe that your home should be a place of inspiration and relaxation, designed to work with your lifestyle. That’s why we are proud to work with some of the best brands on the market, bringing you life-changing technology and exceptional style.
