Young Furniture Makers will feature at JFS
Following on from sponsoring the awards ceremony for the Young Furniture Makers’ Awards at The Furniture Makers’ Awards ceremony in October, January Furniture Show will include a feature showing a selection of the winning designs at the entrance to Hall 1 of the exhibition.
More than 100 designs of furniture and lighting were entered for the awards, covering both domestic and contract use. The featured selection of around 10 designs will show the range of talent and inventiveness among young designers working today: some of whom are still studying and some who are already graduates.
‘It was clear at the Young Furniture Makers’ Awards ceremony that there is both real talent and genuine enthusiasm amongst young designers to use and re-use materials carefully. They not only showed imagination but created furniture with artistry and precision to and produced practical, eye-catching and truly unique pieces,’ says Cleere Scamell, January Furniture Show event director.
‘We are privileged to have some of those designs at JFS in 2020 and I have no doubt that the Young Furniture Makers feature will be a conversation piece in itself.’
