Over 450 exhibitors are getting ready to present their latest designs and innovations in furniture, home furnishings, lighting, flooring and fabric at the January Furniture Show, (NEC 24-27 January 2016).
The newest trends will be in copious supply. Seventies inspired riotous colours and big florals will mix with the more sedate Highland themes of tartans, tweeds and aged leather. Our expanding environmental awareness will be reflected in an increase in new products made from a wide variety of reclaimed materials.
For wild florals check out some of the new upholstery designs on the Whitemeadow stand in Hall 1, or see some of the flamboyant art pieces in Hall 3. Gentle florals will also feature, see some of the pretty fabrics on the Swaffer stand in the Fabric Pavillion in Hall 1, or on throws and cushions on the Gallery Direct and Malini stands in Hall 3.
The current trend for upholstery with a mix of leather and fabric will be at it’s best on the Tetrad and Carlton Furniture stands in Hall 1. Both will have wonderfully aged leather and woven fabric upholstered sofas and chairs. Tetrad’s Harris Tweeds have been made exclusively for them and are rich in heritage colours and traditional designs.
Alternatively, for a different feel glide your hand across the smooth tables with marble tops and metal legs on the VIDA Living stand in Hall 4. For different combinations see the Sophia range on the Bentley Designs stand in Hall 1 which combines antique finished wooden tops and silky painted cabinets.
Furniture and accessories made from reclaimed materials will be big news at the Show. Baker in Hall 1 will have additions to their Reclaimed series, giving new life to old wood turning it into highly desirable cabinet furniture. Another company skilled in the use of making discarded wood attractive and useful again is Rowico, also in Hall 1, their shabby chic reclaimed tables and cabinets have a unique style.
