Following on from sponsoring the awards ceremony for the Young Furniture Makers’ (YFM) exhibition in October, January Furniture Show will include a prominent entrance feature showing a selection of the winning designs.
The YFM Awards are organised by The Furniture Makers’ Company - a City of London Livery Company since 1963, which gained a Royal Charter in 2013. Over 100 designs of furniture and lighting were entered for the YFM Awards - covering both domestic and contract use.
The featured selection at January Furniture Show of around 10 designs will display the range of talent and inventiveness among young designers working today - some of whom are still studying and some who are recent graduates.
Commenting on the feature, Cleere Scamell, Event Director of January Furniture Show said: “It is clear from seeing the winning designs there is both genuine talent and an abundance of enthusiasm amongst young designers to create forward looking designs, and to use and re-use materials carefully.”
Cleere continued: “We are privileged to have some of the winning designs at JFS in 2020 and I have no doubt that the YFM feature will attract considerable attention.”
January Furniture Show is the UK’s largest furniture and interiors trade show and runs from 19th – 22nd January 2020 at Birmingham’s NEC. Entrance is free and visitors can register now at: www.januaryfurnitureshow.com
