They competed against more than 500 other nominations and were presented with their Green Apple Award at a glittering presentation ceremony in the House of Commons on November 14.
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994, and are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent environment group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice.
Judges for the Green Apple Awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
Director, Mark Brown said ''This is an exciting award for our company to win. As a company we are passionate about the environment and 'being green'. By its very nature, our antique furniture business is environmentally friendly, restoring antique furniture, so people can re-use it rather than buying new.
