The 2018 edition of Japan's IFFT/Interior Lifestyle Living will take place from 14-16th November at Tokyo Big Sight.

This year the fair will broaden its focus to the contract sector, in response to increasing demand ahead of the Tokyo Olympics (2020).

As well as the domestic furniture, table and kitchenware it is known for, the fair aims to provide a more effective platform for contract business this year, with special on-site events, improved floor planning and booth signage.

Last year, IFFT/Interior Lifestyle Living welcomed 472 exhibitors (124 of them from overseas) from 19 countries and regions, and 16,654 visitors (800 of them from overseas) from 29 countries and regions.

The Creative Resource feature will return for a seventh edition, to offer well-designed remodelling ideas for housing and commercial facilities. Product categories include wallpaper, floorcoverings, paint and related materials.

IFFT/Interior Lifestyle Living is held each November, and is the sister fair of Interior Lifestyle Tokyo, held in May/June, which is based on Ambiente, Messe Frankfurt’s largest international consumer goods fair, and Heimtextil, the international home and contract textiles fair.
