Spring Fair's Summerhouse hots up

A raft of new exhibitors join The Summerhouse for the first time at Spring Fair 2018, delivering a hand-picked collective of the world’s best products

The jewel in Spring Fair’s crown – The Summerhouse – is set to wow audiences at the 2018 show, from February 4-8, with organisers confirming a raft of new exhibitors that will once again bring the world’s best gift, interior, lighting and lifestyle brands to the UK.

Exclusive to Spring Fair, The Summerhouse is a hand-picked collective offering visitors the latest in on-trend designs, with a highly-edited selection of the most original UK and international suppliers. Helping retailers, specifiers and installers keep pace with changing trends, it will deliver an abundance of inspiration.

Still very much in-demand, Scandinavian products will once again play a starring role with Vita Copenhagen, Cozy Living and Shepherd of Sweden, showcasing everything from lighting to hyyge-inspired slippers. Brands from across the region will bring their latest designs that offer a fresh USP to retail selections.

Among the other new exhibitors will be PTMD, a Dutch company that produces a dazzling collection of products designed to enhance living rooms. Created by leading artists, visitors to its stand will find lighting, pots, glassware, furniture, textiles, artificial flowers, wall and other decorations. Meanwhile, highlighting the variety in The Summerhouse, Natures Collection will be on-hand to present its immaculate range of sheepskins for interior, apparel and footwear.

Other big-name companies in The Summerhouse include The Libra Company, Jellycat, Parlane, India Jane, Dartington Crystal, Gisela Graham, Abigail Ahern, Stone Glow Candles and Bronte By Moon.

Rob Sapwell, Head of Sales (Gift, Home & The Summerhouse) at Spring Fair, comments: “The Summerhouse continues to go from strength to strength and we will once again deliver a curation of the best brands available. If you’re a gift or homeware buyer or store owner there is no better place to source some of the most novel, unique, high-quality designs, be it plush toys or furniture.”

Diversifying for future success
Retailers of all sizes will find next season’s bestsellers at Spring Fair, as well as hearing about the latest trends and gaining valuable business advice from leading industry experts.
