Still time to enter The Furniture Awards 2024

The Furniture Awards are open for entries, and there is still time for businesses exhibiting at the upcoming January Furniture Show (taking place from 21st-24th January, 2024) to enter.

"If you're making your preparations for JFS, the clock is ticking," says Furniture News' Paul Farley, who co-ordinates and chairs the show’s annual awards programme. "You have until Friday 1st December to put together a brief case for why your business stands out in one of the five awards categories, and upload it here.

"You've got to be in it to win it, as they say, but, having co-ordinated the awards programme since its inception in 2014, I can confirm that it's well worth putting your best foot forward if you're confident in your achievements. Take a look at previous winners, or forge your own path – either way, if you think you're among the best, tell us why, so we can share your story with the industry."

Established in 2015 by Furniture News in partnership with JFS, The Furniture Awards are an integral part of the show. Exhibiting suppliers are invited to explain what makes them a champion in one of five categories: Sustainability; Best of British; Design Innovation; Global Player; and Superior Service.

The entries will be shortlisted and assessed by a panel of industry professionals. This year’s judges are: Malcolm Walker (Owner, FIRST MW); Sarah Bianchi (MD, Arighi Bianchi); Alice Rowan Hall (Founder, Rowen Homes); Peter Harding (MD, Fairway Furniture); and furniture designer Adam Daghorn.

The winners will be revealed at the JFS show party, taking place in Hall 1 from 5.30pm on Sunday 21st January.

“In a highly competitive industry, it’s crucial to seize every opportunity to stand out,” Paul concludes. “As the biggest gathering of furniture and interiors suppliers in the UK, JFS presents a unique opportunity to celebrate the industry’s best and brightest, and The Furniture Awards offers those inspirational players a chance to share their stories. Over to you!"
