We’ve kick-started 2010 in superb style (hey, that’s what we do…) by winning the Home and DIY category in the 2009 Online Retail Awards!

The Online Retail Awards sought to reward excellent online experiences, best practice and customer service from retailers around the world and we’re thrilled to be recognised from amongst the global competition.

Our community members love our innovative 3D room planner tool, which allows people of any ability to create the room of their dreams. We love the monochromatic decor with amethyst features in this spacious Sticky Bathroom, created by 3rdfloor:

One in five awards went to US retailers which makes our win even sweeter, especially as we were up against US retail giants such as Amazon.com and Target.com. The latter received a Commendation in our category, Home and DIY, as well as Ochre & Ochre and The White Company.

Giving the award, the judges said: ‘The inspirational new offering from Brent Hoberman, co-founder of lastminute.com, is breath-taking in its scope, friendliness, ease of engagement and phenomenal one million plus product offering.

‘In the year from launch (Feb ’08 – Feb ’09), mydeco has experienced exponential growth. Traffic has risen to approximately 750,000 monthly unique users, the volume of traffic sent through to retailers has increased 30 times, and over 200,000 people have signed up to the weekly newsletter.’

If you want to see what all the fuss is about (and receive all the latest design exclusives, competitions, trends and discounts), simply sign up to our Newsletter and Sale Scoop.

The Online Retail Awards are only in their baby years, 2009 being their very first year, but they’re already showing great taste… all joking aside, the Awards are impartial, independent and objective and saw many great names nominated, from the smallest to the largest retailers.

Other category winners included John Lewis for Multiple Online Retailer, BrandAlley for Marketing Campaign of the Year), Blackwell’s for  Books, Magazines and Newspapers, and Apple for  Computers and Telecommunications. As you can see, we’re among some great company.

Last year, our New Business Development Manager Jenna Anians, above, won two awards at the Retail Week’s Rising Star awards. For more details, go to our Retail Week’s Rising Star Award blog.

Watch this space for more awards  – after all, we’re only on day 6 on 2010!
