The Manchester Furniture Show 2018

Orbital were proud to support the BFM at the Manchester Furniture Show 2018.


This week, we kicked our Monday off by heading to Manchester for the greatly anticipated, annual Furniture Show held at the Manchester Central Conference Centre. Standing alongside the BFM (British Furniture Manufactures Association) and their newly revived exhibition stand, designed by yours truly, we were given the shining platform to showcase our virtual service – enVision.


A chain reaction of interest came as the word started to spread around the show. Manufacturers from across the board took a huge interest to what we offer within the service, from bespoke upholsterers and independent soft furnishing companies to wholesale giants.


Not only was it manufacturers from the trade, but it was great to see several courses being run in furniture design and production. Burnley College students can study for a HND in furniture design, diplomas in furniture making and apprenticeships in upholstery and furniture production.  Their stand in the Main Hall featured examples of the students work including desks, chairs, occasional pieces, screens and dining tables.


Let’s begin looking towards the future for all things enVision.
