Newness in focus at INDX Furniture

INDX Furniture returns to West Midlands exhibition venue, Cranmore Park, from Friday 19th January to Monday 22nd January, and while the first day is reserved for AIS members, general trade visitors are welcome to attend on subsequent days.

Bringing together market trends, insight and innovation, the four-day show will present the latest ranges from a curated selection of manufacturers, brands and service providers, and visitors can look forward to exploring a product mix across upholstery, living room, dining room, and garden.

As part of the INDX portfolio, which delivers 17 business- and buyer-focused trade shows each year, INDX Furniture is organised by Associated Independent Stores (AIS), the UK’s leading buying and services group for fashion, home, and leisure.

Emma Rackley, director of furniture and home, AIS, says: “Amidst a challenging retail and economic landscape, and through our continuing work with Scarlet Opus, our trend and insight forecasting partner, we are focused on key shifts in consumer behaviour, with regards to the products customers are purchasing, and the retail experience they expect – our January 2024 show will reflect this.

“Running Friday to Monday, the first day of the next show will be reserved exclusively for our AIS members, but we look forward to welcoming general trade colleagues across the subsequent days, when we’ll be bringing together leading brands for a trend- and innovation-led product showcase.

“INDX Furniture is a fantastic opportunity for retailers and suppliers to connect, network, and celebrate the industry, and we look forward to catching-up with everyone this month”.

Highlights 

The upcoming show will focus on providing attendees with an unmissable opportunity to meet new suppliers and source new product, and the organising team has shared a preview of some of the highlights to look out for.

Primavera will introduce its new collection, Primo, which has been created to the manufacturer’s high standards, tapping into a broader audience with contemporary yet commercial fabrics and designs.

Baker Furniture will launch the G Plan cabinet collection, completing the iconic brand’s offer, and there will be new collection launches from Collins & Hayes and AMX, plus, having enjoyed a strong year, Italian supplier Digio will exhibit a range of promotionally priced leather products.

The January show will also welcome newcomer Devonshire Living, offering high-quality products that are available from wholesale, but also bespoke paint finishes, hand finished in the UK.

Meanwhile, guest exhibitors include Nicoletti, with its Italian-designed sofas and chairs, French company Akante, with its contemporary furniture collection, and Contrast Upholstery, offering handmade upholstery produced in England. Also present will be Connubia, The English Chesterfield Company, New Trend, and Tomasella.
