It’s been a busy start to 2020 in the home interiors and furniture world! January sees many furniture and interior design fairs and trade shows – from London to Paris to Cologne to Birmingham, with many more shows throughout the year – both in the UK and abroad.
After doing a big European loop that saw us fly and train it between IMM in Cologne, Maison & Objet in Paris and The January Furniture Show in Birmingham, we’ve come back bursting with information and ideas.
For those that haven’t been to any of these fairs, we want to share some insights of both getting the most out of attending these fairs and what the highlights were for us.
We’re a small (but with big ambitions!), independent business and we’re always looking to support other smaller, independent brands. So we’ve teamed up with Moom from sunny Bournemouth who hand-craft a stunning, premium collection of pendant lights made using recycled ‘chucks’.
At Hemming & Wills, it’s our mission to do our bit and help everyone to do their bit to reduce single use plastic waste.
Since David Attenborough showed us the horrific impact plastic, and particularly single use plastic, is having on our oceans, the ‘Blue Planet Effect’ has really taken hold in the UK and rightly so.
Whilst we’re making great strides in terms of reducing single user carrier bags (there’s been a 90% reduction since the charge was brought in for them), we all need to do much, much more right now.
