Long Point Preview

The Long Eaton Guild’s Long Point Exhibition takes place from 18 – 20 September and will showcase an array of designs, including the above image by Siren, covering a wide selection of upholstery, cabinets, bedroom furniture and accessories. We take a look at what’s on show.

The Long Eaton Guild have held trade exhibitions here in the East Midlands for over 50 years. Originally known as ‘Long Eaton Week’, it was often held in May with strawberries and cream, and, at some locations stilton!

Long Eaton has become a hub for quality furniture and since the 1980’s, the show was changed to Long Point to resemble that of the United States largest furniture exhibition located in High Point, North Carolina.

The exhibition continues to get stronger year-on-year and with 2023’s edition upon us, exhibitors include Artistic Upholstery, Iain James Furniture, Alexander & James, Alpha Designs, Ashley Manor, Baker Furniture, Carlton Furniture, Contrast Upholstery, Collins & Hayes, Couch & Co, G Plan, David Gundry, Parker Knoll, ercol, Siren Furniture, Wiemann, Bluebone, Spink & Edgar, Tetrad, Westbridge, Tamarisk, Warwick Fabrics, Kesterport, Libra, Ashwood Designs, Steed Upholstery, Gascoigne Designs, Violino and Duresta.

Andrew J Mitchell, Chairman of the Long Eaton Guild and MD of guild member Artistic Upholstery, commented: “Long Point continues to be the UK’s most enjoyable and relaxed Furniture Exhibition. Our Autumn show is the perfect event for retailers, manufacturers and suppliers to meet and discuss new collections.

“If you haven’t visited us before, then I invite you to take a day or two of your time to come and see why we are known as the most enjoyable and relaxed quality furniture show in the UK. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.”
