We’re excited to announce that the Hilary Devey Collection was part of the winning formula that helped our parent company, Duvalay, win the Bed Manufacturer of the Year (under £10m) by the National Bed Federation as this year’s awards.
Just three years on since the collection was launched, Duvalay has scooped this highly coveted and established award, beating off competition from across the UK.
The Hilary Devey Collection, has proved to be instrumental in being crowned Bed Manufacturer of the Year, having made waves across the Industry, having been voted 2016’s “Best Mid-Priced Mattress’ by The Independent, who said: “It feels like it should cost three times as much”, as well the Metro commenting that it is “the closest I’ve come to sleeping on air.”
Leading interiors journalist, Michelle Ogundehin, Editor in Chief at the style bible of interior design, Elle Decoration, was just as impressed, describing the comfort of the collection as “just fabulous”, as well as “…wondering why it took so long for me to invest in my health in this way...". This fabulous recommendation further strengthened the collection receiving the Good Housekeeping Institute endorsement, scoring an impressive (and rare) nine out of ten.
Duvalay has also continued on its drive to innovate and propel the bed industry into a new direction with the launch of its second mattress collection which was unveiled at the NBF show. Modern and contemporary, the Rosalia Collection, inspired by the iconic Yorkshire Rose symbol, offers a range of sleep-inducing features that won’t break the bank. Made from the same luxurious materials as the Hilary Devey Collection, it uses blends of cotton, wool and cashmere.
Alan Colleran, our Managing Director, has this to say about the award win: “Since our Dragons’ Den experience just over six years ago, our company has grown significantly, as well as diversifying into new markets and countries. This award win is testament to the effort the whole team has put in to making our company and the Hilary Devey Collection a success.
“Our Dragons’ investor, Hilary Devey, has put a great deal of time into the company, as well as personally being involved in the design of her collection, picking out key materials and fabrics. Her invaluable knowledge has helped the Hilary Devey brand secure a number of accolades and reviews by leading experts within the homes & interior industry.”
