Organised by the Long Eaton Guild of Furniture Manufacturers, the biannual Long Point show takes place each spring and autumn in Long Eaton – and this year’s spring show, which runs from 9-11th May, is set to be one of the most diverse editions to date.
Encompassing an impressive 25 manufacturers and distributors across seven locations, this month’s Long Eaton-based showcase is one not to be missed, says guild chairman Andrew Mitchell.
The exhibition, which showcases the latest in upholstery, cabinet and accessories from the guild’s locally based members and various ‘guest’ suppliers, offers a uniquely intimate opportunity to engage with upmarket brands this season – many of which choose to present their newest models within inspiring permanent showrooms, giving buyers a taste of how their purchases could look on the shop floor.
This month’s spring edition will feature five new exhibitors – Contrast Upholstery, Couch & Co, Ercol, Kesterport and Violino.
“Long Eaton has the privilege of being the UK Centre of Quality Upholstery Manufacture,” says Andrew, “with both manufacturing facilities and showrooms displaying some of the best names in quality furniture. The show attracts buyers from the UK and Ireland looking to see new and exciting designs with which to refresh their showrooms, and a warm welcome awaits all business visitors.”
The following exhibitors will be exhibiting across the town’s various locations: Alexander & James, Ashley Manor, Carlton Furniture, David Gundry, Duresta, Ercol, G Plan, Hunter Knight, Kesterport, Parker Knoll, Siren Furniture, Violino and Wiemann at Harrington Mills (NG10 4QE); Bree’s New World, Couch & Co, Richmond Interiors, Tamarisk and Warwick fabrics at West End Mills (NG10 4QD); Gascoigne Designs at Wilsthorpe Road (NG10 3JW); Artistic Upholstery and Iain James Furniture at Bridge Street (NG10 4QQ); Steed Upholstery at Bonsall Street (NG10 2AL); Tetrad at Wade Exhibition Centre in Wellington Street; and Ashwood Designs and Contrast Upholstery at the Westgate Suite (NG10 1EF).
