The main hall for this year’s Manchester Furniture Show, to be held from 17-19th July at Manchester Central, has sold out weeks earlier than in previous years.

The 2015 show was a big success for exhibitors and the exhibitor list is again full of some of the leading names in furniture and interior furnishings from the UK and Europe. Those returning to the main hall include Westbridge, Buoyant, Gallery Direct, Lebus, Bluebone, Morris, Nolte, Kingstown, Rauch, Furmanac, Exclusive, VIDA Living, Shankar, Furniture Origins and Welcome Furniture.

New exhibitors in the main hall include Hookes Interiors, Hyde Line, Arthauss and Essex based leather and fabric upholstery manufacturer Panacea, whose modern designs won many fans at the NEC in January. CIMC also joins the main hall line bringing new furniture and interior furnishing items.

Other major brands returning to the show, with stands in the front of the venue are Baker, Whitemeadow, Wade, Corndell and Rowico.

Show director Laraine Janes says: “We have been delighted with the speed in which the main hall sold out this year - and with big brands. We have a truly stellar exhibitor line-up which we believe reflects growing confidence in both the furniture trade and the importance of the Manchester Furniture Show to buyers. We expect visitors to be treated to some excellent, commercial new collections and of course all presented in a relaxed and stylish venue.”
