Young Furniture Makers exhibition returns this October

The Young Furniture Makers exhibition returns to the City of London for one day only this October, offering industry the opportunity to connect with young designer-makers who are looking to make an impact on the sector.

Organised by The Furniture Makers’ Company, the event showcases the very best furniture and furnishing design talent from GCSE students to young professionals.

Around 150 designers from schools, colleges, universities and graduates from across the UK will be showcasing pieces, including furniture and lighting intended for the domestic and contract market.

The event, which is sponsored by Axminster Tools & Machinery and supported by Celtheath Contract Furniture, The January Furniture Show and The Furniture Ombudsman, will take place on Wednesday 9 October (12.00pm-9.00pm) at Furniture Makers’ Hall and the Dutch Church in Austin Friars, London.

Dids Macdonald OBE, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, will welcome guests from the furniture and design community at 7.00pm before a prize giving with a special to-be-announced guest.

Jonny Westbrooke, CEO of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “The Young Furniture Makers exhibition is an extraordinary and unmissable celebration of talented young designer-makers, many of whom are in the early stages of their career and looking for employment. We encourage everyone to come and meet the future of design at the exhibition.”
