June’s issue of Furniture News is a sofa spectacular! As well reporting from Spring Long Point, we profile Covercraft Upholstery, and look at Alpha Designs’ progress since it was Highly Commended in The Furniture Awards back in January.
On that topic, the NBF’s Simon Williams explains why entering industry awards is worth the effort, while Paul Farley asks if we’re placing too much trust in online reviews.
We also explore new showroom openings from Glasgow’s Premier Housewares and German bedroom manufacturer Staud, while young designer Matt Hill presents his Array coffee table, regular contributor Gav Boden reveals his literary side, and Select First’s Tom Bourne argues the case against celebrity endorsements.
Until the next issue …
