Furniture design evolves rapidly with changing lifestyle trends, creating a plethora of choices, from maximalist to minimalist, modern to classic, and even avant garde. The Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF), which returns to Kuala Lumpur’s Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC) and Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) from 6-9th March, promises to deliver the complete range of product for global buyers …

The largest furniture fair in south-east Asia, and consistently ranked among the top 10 worldwide, MIFF has spearheaded the furniture exhibition scene since its inception in 1995. A dynamic platform that brings together renowned exhibitors, brands and buyers, it is a top global destination for the latest in furniture trends and designs, plus business networking. 

MIFF is the world’s largest marketplace for top-quality Malaysian hardwood furniture. MIFF also provides a direct route to Muar, Malaysia’s furniture city – with some 200 Muar-based manufacturers present, many of them within the fair’s Muar Hall, which is managed by the Muar Furniture Association, a strategic partner of the show since 2013.

High quality, dependable, creative, aesthetic and trustworthy – these are just some of the terms international buyers use when describing Malaysian manufacturers. At MIFF, visitors will discover world-class design in office furniture, home furniture, wooden furniture, fittings and furnishing materials from over 600 manufacturers and exporters from Malaysia and its neighbours – including China, Indonesia, Japan and Korea, plus New Zealand, Portugal, Sri Lanka and Turkey.

Other highlights include MIFF Office, which offers a range of solutions for today’s workspaces and home offices, and MIFF Timbermart, which caters to those seeking wood and wood-related materials. 

Then there is Millennials@Design (MAD), a curated space featuring cutting-edge designs and futuristic ideas from 30 award-winning young Malaysian designers.

The show’s organiser expects some 20,000 visitors – including 6000 international buyers – to attend MIFF 2020, which kicks off the Asian show season, meaning buyers will be among the first to source the newest products.
