Products galore

Gallery Direct’s furniture offer will grow by 50% alongside new textiles.

Gallery Direct will kick off 2024 with the launch of its new collection which features a larger selection of furniture, along with soft furnishings including around 70 new cushions, throws and rugs, all designed in-house by Gallery Direct to offer exclusive styles.

‘We’re incredibly excited about all the new products. Our furniture catalogue already offers a wide selection, catering for a range of price points, as well as giving customers a great variety of designs to choose from, and the new collection extends this even further, expanding our catalogue by around 50%. It includes full coordinating ranges and individual occasional pieces, crafted from an array of materials, including wood, in different beautiful finishes, coloured glass, marble, and metal,’ says James Hudson, Gallery Direct commercial director.

One of the new furniture ranges is Geo, which has been developed to highlight the use of geometric design, with a nod towards retro style. The cabinet pieces feature circular shaping on the doors, echoed on the tops of the table legs and the rounded table ends. Geo is made using oak veneers and solids, where practical, with a natural matt finish. Gallery’s successful Borden sees a range extension with the addition of a round dining table, along with occasional tables and an open display unit. Offering contemporary design, Borden is crafted from solid acacia wood with a warm natural finish that shows off the beautiful grain of the timber. The pieces feature soft curved ends on the table legs and the uprights of the display unit, and rounded edges on the tops and shelves to echo this.

The new textiles collection includes a selection of cushions and throws, including a range of Bohemian styles combining on-trend geometric designs with handcrafted Indian looks. Some of these feature jacquard designs coupled with tufted handwork – a mix of classic and contemporary. 

There is also a new range of rugs, including some made from New Zealand lambs’ wool.

‘We’re confident 2024 is going to be a fantastic year for us,’ says Hudson. ‘We have an amazing team. The supply chain head office team and overseas offices were pleased to achieve hundreds of price drops for 2024 across our catalogue. We’re delighted to have Lizzie Sladen, product director, back from her maternity leave. Our talented in-house team of designers, photographers and stylists, led by Michael Baxendale, who has just been promoted to design director, did an excellent job in 2023 and are working away ready for 2024.

‘We can’t wait to show the new collection to customers old and new. The sales team is holding an At Home event at our Chesterfield showroom in January, just one of a series planned for the year, so contact them to book an appointment. And we’ll be exhibiting at JFS and Spring Fair, so come along to see us.’
