A north Notts furniture maker and designer has made it through to the final of the Craft and Design annual Selected Awards.

Lee Sinclair has made it down to the last six in the awards and it is now up to the judges to see if he has made it down to the final three.

The awards, first launched in 2009, are based on an online public vote for British and Irish design makers, with work represented in Selected - Craft and Design’s prestigious online gallery.

Lee’s furniture designs have been recognised before when he was selected as the number one bespoke furniture maker in Britain by the Independent newspaper in 2005.

This year Lee welcomes his daughter Roz and son-in-law, Dan, into the family business.

Under the new trading name of Griffin+Sinclair, it is hoped that their new inspirational designs will propel them to greater success.
