With a new year around the corner, this month’s issue is looking to the future – from game-changing technology and inspiring leadership, to sourcing platforms and emerging talent.
As the January Furniture Show (and The Furniture Awards) returns to the NEC, we take a sneak peek at what’s to come, while our Showtime feature rounds up the trade exhibitions worthy of attention this season (and beyond).
Looking further ahead, the industry’s top tech creatives discuss how augmented reality (AR) is poised to revolutionise furniture shopping, we celebrate the winners of this year’s Young Furniture Makers Awards, and some of the finest minds in retail analysis share their views on the short- and long-term implications of the sector’s supply chain crisis.
To top it off, we interview Jonny Brierley, the founder and CEO of Moda Furnishings, and Angela Crouch, the UK MD of California-headquartered sleep empire, Resident.
Whether you’ve new product in your sights or a will to change, there’s plenty of food for thought in December’s issue!
