Since 2001, CoolBrands® have been canvassing the opinions of experts and consumers to produce a barometer of Britain’s coolest brands, people and places - and The French Bedroom Company are thrilled to announce that for the fourth (yes, FOURTH!) year running we've been awarded CoolBrands® status for 2015/16 - along with funky, edgy brands Charlotte Olympia (gotta love those shoes!), Secret Cinema and Alexander McQueen; and some classic established companies which still remain at the forefront of their markets: Laurent Perrier, Apple and Mercedes-Benz.
The UK’s CoolBrands are chosen by an Expert Council of influencers - some of the hippest people around and members of the British public - a pretty cool bunch too! Now, of course, "cool" is subjective and personal, so to make it consistently as cool as cool can be (yes, we know, ice cool!) each set of voters are asked to keep 6 key factors in mind:
In the Home Decoration and Soft Furnishings sector, which is the category in which we are judged, brands that also performed strongly included: wallpaper gurus Graham & Brown, so hot they're cool radiator specialists, Bisque, and eclectic home wares emporium, Pedlars.
Here's a few of our favourite fellow CoolBrands®...
