Annabel Kilner, head of commercial at Made.com said: "Made Presents is an exciting new brand play for us and offers an opportunity for interior lovers to immerse themselves in the world of design this winter. We want to offer the antithesis to Black Friday – a sanctuary where people can come and relax away from all the retail chaos. We have hand selected inspiring lifestyle partners to help us put on some superb masterclasses in the run up to Christmas, that we can’t wait to get involved with."
