The new January Furniture Show 2015 sees the return of a well-known name to the exhibition arena following an eight-year absence. Quality upholstered furniture designer Ultra Furniture is one of the latest big industry names to confirm its attendance at the industry's biggest show of the year, taking place from 13-15th January at the Birmingham NEC.
Ultra Furniture has been designing and making upholstery for over 20 years, providing a wide range of upholstered furniture to some of the leading UK furniture retailers.
Says Glenn Aston, MD of Ultra Furniture: "We've been noticeably absent from furniture shows for a long time, but with the launch of our new product range - Charlotte-Anne - we wanted to cement our position in the independent market. We felt that the January Furniture Show was the show to help us to achieve this, and we look forward to showing our products in the hall 1 link."
With almost 300 British and international furniture brands now confirmed, the show is set to be the largest event ever organised by directors of Furniture Fairs and industry experts Laraine Janes and Theresa Raymond.
"Having Ultra Furniture signing up is another wave of show support for the new-style, new format exhibition," says Theresa. "We are supported by every major brand that showed in 2014 plus many others, like Ultra, who have returned to the show. It is great to be regarded as an unmissable show and we have been totally overwhelmed by the unprecedented level of support for 2015."
