Interiors Monthly Newsletter 243



Welcome to this week's newsletter from Interiors Monthly

Welcome to this week’s (slightly early) newsletter. August isn’t traditionally a great month for interiors sales but this may be changing, with John Lewis delivering a double-digit increase in furniture sales just a week after bed sales jumped by almost a third. On the topic of beds, while you catch upon the week’s main headlines its Bed Show awards judging for me.
