With the official d-list now published, we’ve spoken to d-list verified tick holder, Richard Davonport, Founder and MD of Davonport, about his quality-focussed design ethos and his reaction to becoming an official d-list verified designer…
“2018 marks my 25th year in the kitchen industry so it’s a particularly poignant time to be nominated to feature on the d-list,” Davonport began. “When I started in my workshop all those years ago I never imagined that one day I’d be nationally recognised as a leading kitchen designer and craftsman. Something I have never been willing to compromise on is the quality of the furniture which carries my name so to be acknowledged for this via the British Design & Manufacturing Award in 2017 and now the d-list nomination is incredibly rewarding. I’m very grateful to those who have supported me over the past 25 years and of course to those who selected me to feature on the 2018 d-list.”
