On the day, visitors will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase one-off products ranging from lighting to ceramics, textiles, furniture and screen prints as well meeting the designers and gaining a first-hand insight into their work. Some of the North West’s most talented designers have signed up to exhibit at the show including Annabel Perrin, Northern Letters and Hannah Nunn. A series of exciting, interactive demos will also take place on the day from Sian Astley, Aunty Mabel’s Seat and May Wild Ceramics.

Co Event Organiser Rachael Adams commented, “The Independent Interiors Show was born out of a passion for independent design and the desire to create a platform for independent homeware designers to sell their products to the public. Many of the brands we have on board, our visitors may not be familiar with so it’s great to get them in front of a new audience.” One of the highlights of the show will be the launch of new homewares brand Lomas & Lomas who will be exhibiting their range of up-cycled and digitally designed products inspired by nature, wildlife and a love of all things vintage.
