Autumn Fair, one of the largest seasonal gift and home trade shows in the UK, will return this year with thousands of new products displayed across 12 sectors. Interior and outdoor furniture will be well represented throughout the Home and specially-edited Summerhouse sectors.
With many exhibitors launching their newest product ranges at the show, as well as revealing the most current and upcoming trends, Autumn Fair is an unmissable event for furniture retailers. It will provide a plethora of opportunities for buyers across department stores, independents and online retailers, to source the latest products ahead of the year’s second buying cycle.
According to Autumn Fair, coppers, golds, chromes and white marble will all be in fashion over the coming year, alongside a pastel colour palette of greys, pinks and neutrals. Floral and fake florals are also expected to play a major role in interior design in the coming year and Autumn Fair provides a unique opportunity to learn about these trends and identify new stock.
With a mix of some of the biggest and most well-established companies within the sector exhibiting alongside impressive emerging brands, retailers will be sure to find what they are looking for at Autumn Fair.
As households increasingly seek inspiration from across the globe, international designs will be shown by a diverse mix of exhibitors. Among those confirmed are Dutch interior design label Zuiver, which produces contemporary-looking products with striking visuals, and another company from The Netherlands, Dutch Bone, which creates traditional pieces with a modern twist.
Meanwhile, renowned brand Coach House, supplier of everything from furniture and mirrors to lighting and outdoor products, has expanded its stand space by around 10% to 670m². Other well-known brands include Light & Living, Voyage Decoration and Pacific Lifestyle.
Louise Young, divisional director of the Spring Fair and Autumn Fair events, says: “We are excited to unveil the latest products across the furniture sector at Autumn Fair this year. Always a hotbed of innovation, visiting buyers and retailers can expect to set eyes on the biggest trends before they take off, allowing them to leap ahead of the curve when choosing their stock for the next season.”
