With the January Furniture Show’s support, trade magazine Furniture News is singling out the manufacturers, suppliers and service providers which have come through for its readers in the last year.
Furniture News’ Readers’ Choice Awards, sponsored by the January Furniture Show, seek to celebrate the suppliers that are leading the field, based on its readers’ nominations – and you can let the industry know who’s the best in the business by casting your votes here
Bringing the trade insight, news and products since 1986, Furniture News is dedicated to informing industry and building business in the UK domestic furniture market, through its monthly magazine, website, supplements and digital products, and has long worked closely with the January and Manchester furniture shows to deliver the best results for readers and advertisers alike.
Furniture News’ Editor-in-Chief, Paul Farley, says: “Which suppliers came through for you during testing times? Whose product lines have made the difference, both in-store and online, and which service providers could you simply not be without? As we tentatively exit one of the most turbulent periods in the industry’s history, now’s the perfect opportunity to acknowledge the business partnerships you most value.”
With categories ranging from innovation and sustainability to the best operators in dining furniture, beds, upholstery and technology, the Readers’ Choice Awards leave no stone unturned in the search for the trade’s favourites.
Zoë Bonser, director of Clarion’s Retail portfolio, adds: “We are delighted that after a challenging year for the furniture industry, and for the exhibitions industry, we are getting things up and running again with the return to live shows, starting with Manchester Furniture Show, in Harrogate this July.
"Now is the perfect time to showcase and celebrate all of the suppliers and service providers who have supported their customers and proved their worth, time and again, over the past year.
"Every business will be thankful for the partnerships that helped, and continue to help them negotiate all this disruption, and, together with Furniture News, we’re looking forward to finding out which ones mattered most."
Voting closes at midnight on Friday 11th June, and the winners will be revealed in August’s issue of Furniture News. Choose from the suggested nominees or put forward your own here
