The Livingetc Style Awards 2022 is a celebration in the best of modern home design. Selected from hundreds of entries, our panel of expert judges has chosen a selection of incredible winners, your guide to the best of what to buy right now.
Great design has to be so much more than functional. It has become increasingly important for it to appeal to the senses and tap into the way we feel, enhancing our lives, outlooks and perhaps even our souls. The right design, whether because of the colour, shape or material, can hold an extraordinary power, not only to invigorate our homes but our wellbeing, too. This is why we launched the Livingetc Style Awards, to shine a light on the products that not only have visual appeal but can have a transformative effect on our day-to-day rituals. Now in its second year, this event celebrating considered design is more crucial than ever. We've covered everything from big-ticket items like sofas to home fragrances that promise to bring calm. We also highlight Design Icons, which remain as relevant as ever, alongside Wise Buys, those clever purchases offering good quality as well as value for money. Get ready to enter the world of enduring style.
Meet the judges
Our panel was made up of Livingetc editor Pip Rich, Livingetc Editorial Director Sarah Spiteri, designers Alice Temperley, Eva Sonaike and Staffan Tollgard and journalist, broadcaster and tastemaker Pandora Sykes. Spending the day together at London's Beaverbrook Townhouse, they have compiled a list of the most well-designed home products available to buy today.
It was fascinating to hear the different opinions and viewpoints as these experts debated what should make it on to the list of winners. They all agreed that to receive a Style Award the design had to be beautiful and to make life better in some way - either aesthetically, functionally, or both.
