by Laura

Variety and individual are the buzz words for new ranges and products that will be unveiled at this year’s Manchester Furniture Show, (17-19 July, Manchester Central).  Manchester’s increased number of exhibitors will present a myriad of choices from glistening lights to aged leather sofas to cater all looks from country living to modern urban chic.


For a gentle country look – be it stately home grandeur or cosy cottage, Manchester’s exhibitors will not disappoint, Westbridge, Wade and Whitemeadow will be showing sofas and chairs that could grace the home of a country squire or cottage dweller in bright florals, rich velvets and soft tweeds.

To complement in living and dining Baker, Wood Brothers, Rowico, Corndell and Furniture Origins all have collections to suit a fresh green look, with reclaimed woods, painted finishes and mixed textures. Shankar have dining chairs and carvers to match grand and simple looks, with new designs in velvets and leathers in a huge choice of finishes.

If the style you’re after is more urban, then Lebus, Buoyant, Scan Thor, Panacea or Mini Divani will have the perfect choices for the city and it’s pace, with sofas in leather, crisp geometrics and contemporary styling.Heirloom - Copy
