Long Eaton’s open house impresses

From 13-15th May, the Long Point show returned to Derbyshire’s Long Eaton for the first of two showcases this year, enabling the town’s growing number of permanent occupants – alongside a strong roster of guest exhibitors – to present their latest models within a range of aspirational, intimate showroom settings.

In 2014, the town of Long Eaton was recognised as the UK Centre of Quality Upholstery Manufacture, and its biannual Long Point show brings together the newest product from the manufacturers based in and around the town, plus guest exhibitors and those with permanent showrooms there.

This year, 29 businesses exhibited at the show, including newcomers (the majority of which now occupy permanent showrooms in the town) Andrew Paul Furniture, Fortune Woods UK, Hartmann Mobel, Ramaro Upholstery, The Hastings Sofa Company, Hjort Knudsen, and Michael Tyler Furniture.

“Long Point enjoys the reputation of being the most enjoyable and relaxed furniture exhibition within the UK, and is the ideal vehicle for manufacturers and retailers alike to work together,” says Mitchell, chairman of show organiser, the Long Eaton Guild of Furniture Manufacturers.

Indeed, the show remains an incredibly intimate, well-dressed and welcoming sourcing environment, and the fact that more and more businesses are choosing to take on permanent showrooms in the town indicates a longer-term belief in the town’s ability to live up to its branding.
