16 January 2018
Well, it's that time of the year again and we're soon off to show our wares at the January Furniture Show 2018 being held at the NEC Birmingham between 21-24 January. Please come and see us on our Stand No. 4-E75 in Hall 4.
We have recently decided to consolidate our chairs range somewhat and we are discontinuing the stocking of some of the older styles and slower moving products. However, we are adding a couple of new chairs to our range and these are the Paesana Wooden Seated Chair Ref. 121 (to pair the Paesana Rush Seated Chair Ref. 120) and the Nordic Stick Back Chair Ref. 157. Please see the images above.
Last year the foot-fall at the JFS was generally lower for everybody, but we made a lot of new contacts and wrote more new business than the year before. Furthermore, a lot of the new customers we acquired last year have developed into some very worthwhile relationships. If we can repeat that success this year we will be very satisfied.
Looking back on 2017, our sales increased significantly, but rather strangely, turnover was spread evenly across the year's four quarters rather than following the historical seasonal patterns we are used to. It will be interesting to see what 2018 has in store for us all.
