Interiors Powerhouse

Variety and dynamic are the buzz words for this year’s Manchester Furniture Show (15-17 July, Manchester Central). With the high-end MidPoint Furniture Exhibition joining the show for the first time there will be more choice than ever before. From glam dark woods to luxe metallics, and from mainstream to high-end, visitors will have plenty of temptations.

The UK’s Alpha Designs return to Manchester with new styles designed to charm and delight. Their new sophisticated and colourful sofas and chairs ooze comfort and modernity.

Italia Living shows at Manchester for the first time in the MidPoint section. Their luxurious leather sofas are all about aspiration and relaxation. With all the chic of Italian design they will be introducing new models in pale greys and light blues with metal accents.

For living and dining furniture the choice is extensive too. Trends from traditional to futuristic and minimalist, and plenty of mixed textures will tempt buyers at every turn with plenty of new exhibitors showing their latest collections.

First time Manchester exhibitor Venjakob will be in the MidPoint section. Their German expertise produces high-end contemporary living and dining collections and the three new ranges on show feature white lacquers, subtle internal lighting and concealed handles. 

Expert Italian producer Calligaris are at Manchester for the first time. Their innovative, quality driven collections are renowned worldwide. Their 2018 collection features individually styled dining and coffee tables with ceramic tops, and padded chairs in soft velvets.

Beds are always popular at Manchester and there are many new exhibitors showing beds and mattresses this year.
