And the winner is...


Our quest to find the most stylish home of our handcrafted, fireclay sinks demonstrated the huge variety of kitchen styles to which they are suited. From the luxurious to the rustic and the traditional to the contemporary, the Great Shaws Showcase competition revealed that a Shaws sink is a timeless design statement that can work in any home.

Choosing from so many impressive entries was tough. The immense amount of care and consideration taken to create the perfect kitchen space was apparent in every entry! The competition proved that we really do see the kitchen as the heart of the home. Here in Darwen there is some serious kitchen envy!

The winner offered us a chic and individual interpretation of a Scandi aesthetic. A clean and elegant design that provides a practical family space without compromise. The perfectly-judged dressing, solid wood detailing and vintage pieces of furniture add character and warmth. At its centre, of course, is a Shaws of Darwen Double Bowl fireclay sink, beautifully matched with British-made Perrin & Rowe Traditional taps.

So without further ado, we are delighted to announce that the winner of the Great Shaws Showcase is Katie Collins from London. It turns out that Katie knows a lot about putting together a Scandi look, as she has a fantastic Instragram blog on the subject @simplyscandikatie.

The prize was a professional photography shoot at Katie’s home and the results exude the incredible sense of calmness and comfort that her beautifully-curated space has created. 

Our next blog will showcase Katie’s winning kitchen and show how she achieved her Scandi look. Sign up to our newsletter, and we’ll keep you informed of our latest news and blog entries.
