Online children’s furniture business Mirabelle Designs has revealed it has been nominated for an Etsy Award.

The Bradford-on-Avon-based company, which was only established last year, is an Anglo-French firm, specialising in children’s furniture and décor.

The Etsy Awards celebrate the best of creativity in the UK & Ireland, with the winner being awarded up to £10,000 and the chance to showcase their products during the London Design Festival in September 2016.

Marie Dickinson, founder of Mirabelle Designs, spoke to the Wiltshire Times on her nomination: “I was absolutely thrilled to get the nod, it is very exciting and quite an honour. I found out about this on twitter. I applied for it and Etsy got back to me saying I had been nominated. Doing something creative like this is something I love, I am lucky and it is a privilege.

“I got into this by chance really. This profession chose me rather than the other way around. I try to create this element of playfulness with my work and try to capture the imagination of children - I still think I am a child and that.”

Voting is now open until the 6 June 2016 on the Etsy website at: www.etsyawards.com/uk/Finalists
