For the first time the January Furniture Show (JFS), the largest furniture and interiors trade-show in the UK, will include LIGHT, a dedicated lighting section in conjunction with the LIA (Lighting Industry association). Held annually at the NEC in Birmingham, JFS is a 4 day show and in 2019 takes place from 20th – 23rd January.

The show has over 500 UK and International exhibitors and regularly has over 20,000 visitors who include retail, contract and interior design buyers. Exhibitors include many prestigious and household names such as Parker Knoll, Ercol and Sealy. On show are collections of beds, bedroom, living, and dining furniture for high-end, middle, volume and contract markets, together with accompanying interior furnishings including art, mirrors, glassware and soft furnishings.

LIGHT is a whole new sector for 2019 dedicated to lighting of every kind. It will boast prestigious UK lighting companies including Oaks Lighting, Impex Russell, Elstead, Illuminati and Searchlight, who will all exhibit at JFS for the first time. They will be joined by the ever-creative Där Lighting, who has successfully exhibited at the show for the last three years.

Lighting has been important at JFS since the show’s inception in 2015 and has taken its place within the interior furnishings zone. Its elevation in 2019 to having its own sector reflects the growing importance placed on lighting by buyers for lighting of all kinds, for both domestic and commercial spaces.

In adding LIGHT, the organisers are giving buyers at the show a special opportunity to see and select from the full spectrum of lighting available in the UK with many including unique designs from inventive European brands in their collections.

Elstead specialise in the design and manufacture of classic and contemporary lights, producing and supplying over 2500 different interior and external lights for homes, hotels and restaurants.

For the ‘wow’ factor the Impex Russell stand will be a hot destination. One of the UK and Europe’s leading crystal chandelier manufacturers and suppliers, they produce comprehensive ranges of crystal, iron and brass chandeliers in traditional and contemporary styles, and have over 60 years of knowledge behind them.

Illuminati are well known to designers, architects and retailers all over the world and its UK design team reveals its flair and skill with highly contemporary pendant, floor, table and wall lights. With designs for high-end residential and commercial use, their imaginative application of shapes and materials will be on full display at JFS.

JFS is the UK’s premier furniture and interiors event and gives buyers a golden opportunity to select from large and small well known, new and artisan brands. Entrance and parking are free. For more information and to register your attendance please go to:
