More names sign up for the January Furniture Show

A host of leading brands from the UK and across the globe are continuing to sign up for the January Furniture Show as it returns for its second year in 2016.

To be held from 24-27th January at the NEC, Birmingham, the raft of new exhibitors is testament to the success of what is now one of the biggest and best furniture and furnishings events of the year.

New to the January Furniture Show are Daro, Heritage Furniture, Contempo (Italy), Indian Hub, Panacea, Slumbernights, Indus Valley, EFS, Highgate Beds, CLX, Classic Furniture, Polish Embassy and Peressini (Italy). In addition, returning from last year, are GCL, Global Home, Wire Lamps and Annaghmore Agencies.

James Brown, director of Daro, says: "We exhibited at the International Furniture Show/Interiors Show for over 20 years but withdrew from the exhibition in 2014. We felt it didn't offer value for money and had become dominated by larger organisations. We visited the new January Show earlier this year and felt that the buzz had returned as well as providing a reasonable cost for exhibitors.  We are looking forward to returning for 2016 and introducing our products to the wider furniture community."

The Malaysian Furniture Council (MFC) has also taken over 500 sq m and will be bringing 14 companies to the show, showcasing a range of innovative Malaysian furniture designs from occasional and living room furniture right through to bedroom and dining collections. AMPR, the Romanian trade association, has also taken two large stands, both in hall 2.

Said Sarah Astles of the MFC: "The UK is one of Malaysia's key European markets for furniture and the January Furniture Show is the ideal place for us to connect with UK buyers and wholesalers from all over the country."

The show, which this year returns to a four day format with a Sunday opening, already has a strong line up of exhibitors with big quality names such as Alstons, Whitemeadow, Alfrank Designs, Buoyant, Skovby, Vogue Beds, Collins & Hayes, Furnico, Duresta, Ercol, Serene Furnishings, Rauch, Sherborne, Baker Furniture, Celebrity, Gallery Direct, Tetrad, Willis & Gambier, Libra, and Pacific Life Style.
