In May 2018, Symphony Group held its largest product launch event for Laura Ashley Kitchens and Fitted Bedrooms. Both collections have seen excellent growth in the last 12 months and to celebrate this, key retailers were also invited to attend a black tie awards ceremony at Oulton Hall.


Symphony invited its retailers to get an exclusive preview of the new Harbury kitchen range, as well as be the first to see the new brochure and magazine that will be available from June. Also in attendance were British Ceramic Tile to talk about their new Laura Ashley Splashback Collection and Everhot, a UK manufacturer of electric cast iron range cookers as their products have started to be used in the new Laura Ashley Kitchen Collection brochure.


Stewart Marshall, Group Brand Development and Export Manager, said “We’ve just had another successful year and we were delighted to celebrate with all our retailers during the product launch day and the awards ceremony at Oulton Hall. They’ve all worked so hard to make the Laura Ashley Kitchen and Fitted Bedrooms a success and it was great to see so many of our retailers winning awards this year; we’re looking to making it even bigger and better next year.”


The black tie ceremony was held at Oulton Hall and celebrated the success of our retailers in the last 12 months. Expanding the number of awards available from last year, this year’s awards included Designer of the Year – Kitchens, New Stockist of the Year and Multiple Stockist of the Year.
