Young Furniture Makers to feature at exhibition
Following on from sponsoring the awards ceremony for the Young Furniture Makers’ Awards (YFM) 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 event.
Over 100 designs of furniture and lighting, covering both domestic and contract use, were entered for the YFM awards. The featured selection of around 10 designs will show some of the range of talent and inventiveness among young designers working today – some of whom are still studying.
January Furniture Show event director Cleere Scamell says: “It was clear at the YFM Awards ceremony in October 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 too, and produced practical, eye-catching and truly unique pieces.
“We are privileged to have some of those designs at JFS in 2020 and I have no doubt that the YFM feature at the entrance to hall 1 will be a conversation piece in itself.”
