Furnitex 2013

The 2013 Furnitex event was held last week in Melbourne attracting furniture retailers, interior designers, manufactures and importers from all over Australia and overseas.

The event held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre was the normal showcase of furniture and home wares and interior trends for the coming year ahead.

As my focus is locally made product it was evident that the number of Australian made exhibitors was smaller again this year, which for me is a disappointing trend I am seeing.

On Friday night the AFA furniture awards evening was held attended by about 80 people from various companies within the furniture industry, the night was hosted by Michael Roberts and acknowledged some of the best furniture makers in the industry.
