Manchester is about to become ‘furniture city’ once again for 3 days this July. Established and new exhibitors will flood the halls of Manchester Central for the 2019 Manchester Furniture Show (MFS) from Saturday 14th to Tuesday 16th July.
Keeping its charm and relaxed appeal MFS continues to be a show for serious business with A list UK and international exhibitors at every level of the market, and attracting big name retail buyers. Already 90% sold out, exhibitors include plenty of returning favourites, among them are Alpha Designs, Blue Bone, Buoyant, Furmanac, Westbridge, Whitemeadow and VIDA Living. MidPoint also makes a welcome return in the Charter Hall and many favourites return here too - Baker Furniture, Italia Living and SITS are just a few of them.

On show will be a wide selection of their best-selling recliners including the Albany and the Virginia, which both offer a choice of sizes and supreme comfort. Also new are Gradi Living who bring their Italian upholstery know-how and the latest models in their Signature and Easy Living collections.
La-Z-Boy are also experts with leather and recliners and their latest Kenzie and Augustine models will attract plenty of attention with new leather and tilt options. Whitemeadow will have a busy stand as they not only have new sofas and sofabeds in their own collection, they will also have new pieces in their Content by Conran collaboration and new models in the dramatic Orla Kiely Upholstery range under The Branded Furniture Company umbrella.
New cabinet collections will also be on display from Rowico who are introducing several new ranges including a perfectly designed Scandinavian dining range and a dark dining range full of drama. Blue Bone also have a new Scandi style collection called Oslo. Corndell extend their Oak Mill into bedroom - it’s strong industrial look has a touch of rustic and bold style. Heartlands are introducing several new additions to their catalogue with marble dining sets and upholstered bed frames.
MidPoint - the show within a show proved hugely popular last year, it offered a new dimension to MFS and this year returns with a great mix of prestigious brands - A.L.F and Italia Living from Italy, Gala Collezione and SITS and new multi-case exhibitor Kler from Poland, Baker, Chelsom and Kesterport from the UK. Stand-out upholstery, en-vogue occasional furniture and beautifully designed cabinet furniture will all be on display.
Manchester itself will of course play a huge part in the buzz of MFS as the lively bars and restaurants surrounding the city centre venue become awash with furniture industry chat and add stories of shows past - Furniture City will come alive this July!
