Bursts of colour and bursts of design flair will be a stand out in Manchester this July as the 2019 Manchester Furniture Show (MFS), returns to Manchester Central for 3 days - running from 14th to 16th July.

More relaxed than its big sister, January Furniture Show, it is already 90% sold out and once again features MidPoint - the show within a show full of exclusive designs from prominent brands. Exhibitors in the Main Hall and the MidPoint section include both regular and new exhibitors with plenty to shout about - hundreds of new collections and dozens of new additions to best-selling ranges, all ready to entice the 5000+ attending buyers.  

Just a few of the well-known UK and International brands showing their latest collections include modern cabinet suppliers A.L.F from Italy, Baker Furniture from the UK and Ireland’s VIDA Living. Upholstery experts Italy’s Italia Living, Poland’s SITS and the UK’s Westbridge and Whitemeadow brands will all have new models on show. In beds, UK luxury manufacturers Furmanac and Whitemeadow will launch new styles and will be joined by Sweet Dreams launching new mattresses and beds and Arte N showing new beds and co-ordinating bedroom furniture. 

The Main Hall plays host to a large number of MFS regulars and those rapidly becoming regulars - upholstery majors Alpha Designs, Buoyant, La-Z-Boy and XYZ all return after previously enjoying successful shows and are joined by Sherborne this year. Cabinet suppliers Ancient Mariner, Corndell, Global Home, Heritage and Rowico regularly enjoy meeting their existing customers and making new ones at MFS. Mixing furniture with décor items Blue Bone, Derry’s, Pharmore and Wilde Java are returning masters of the art. 

After the success of MidPoint being a part of MFS for the first time in 2018, it further establishes itself as an essential part of MFS this year with many of the favoured brands picking up where they left off last year. Premium international brands A.L.F, Gala Collezione, Italia Living and SITS will show alongside UK brands Baker Furniture, Chelsom and Kesterport. New exhibitor Kler is a highly regarded multi-case manufacturer and supplier from Poland. For over 40 years it has been producing on-trend styles, continually adapting as fashions and manufacturing methods have advanced.

Looking forward to this year’s show event director Cleere Scamell said, “We are anticipating a lively MFS this summer. Our exhibitors - both MFS and MidPoint, are experts at producing collections that are right for the market and that buyers will love. Yet again the exhibitor line-up includes brands with great pedigree and great skills.  We look forward to welcoming all of our visitors to the UK’s most important and enjoyable summer furniture event.
