As the office and working environment continues to change and the way in which people work has evolved over the last few years, the furniture industry had to respond. With an emphasis on breakout and collaborative working areas, here are a few of our favourites from the show. This years’ “New Visions of Work’ theme was very fitting.

Here are a few of our highlights -

Andreu World

Andreu World displyed the new Nuez stool, an addition to the Nuez chair, a brand new sofa - Element which looked amazing upholstered in tan leather as well as the Raglan Grand, and comfortable Capri lounge chairs.

Akaba

Akaba launched a new seating system - Xoko and table range - Gune. The Hanna range has also been extended with a new high back version for extra comfort.

Gaber

Gaber launched a new lounge chair, Cucuracha designed by Favaretto & Partners. A comfortable, swivel and tilting upholstered lounge chair with plastic arms.

Lammhults

Following from the original Attach range, Lammhults have created Detach. A worksystem with integrated power and acoustic screens, a flexible and adaptable system for whatever is required.

Pedrali

Pedrali launched a range of new office pieces including the Elinor Executive Task cahir designed by Claudio Bellini, the Temps Task Chair designed by Jorge Pensi and the new Ypsilon folding table by Jorge Pensi.

Moooi at Salone del Mobile 2017

Spectacular, unique, extraordinary… a few words that can be used to describe Moooi’s installation at Salone del Mobile in 2017 and quite possibly everyone's highlight for this year.

Within an old warehouse, Moooi transformed the space in to an environment of ‘creative luxury’ – A Life Extraordinary. Within which they displayed their unique and quirky collection.

The big Momentum Winter sale has started early! With so many wonderful designer pieces for home and office, from sofas and chairs to lights and even fabric to choose from, it's not to be missed!

Pedrali

A visit to Bergamo

One of the benefits of working closely with our manufacturing partners is that we are able to take architects, designers and customers to visit factories and cultural centres around the UK & Europe. This trip was a visit to see the stunning new Pedrali showroom and distribution centre in Bergamo and the new wood factory in Manzano, near Venice . 

Clerkenwell Design Week 2016

Momentums Highlights of Clerkenwell Design Week 2016

We love a trip to London to catch up with suppliers and see what’s new and this year is no exception with displays in Design Fields, Project, Additions, Platform and Icon House of Culture there was furniture and design aplenty, although the spread out layout was hard to navigate at first but we got there in the end. There was a big emphasis on cool and effective workspaces with a lot of natural finishes and streamline frames and shapes, as well as a lot of colour and texture.

Salone del Mobile 2016

Salone del Mobile, Milan 2016

Salone del Mobile is always a big occasion, the manufacturers pull out all the stops, introducing new designs and each stand looks impeccable.

100% Design & Design Junction 2015

We always look forward to our trips to London, especially during London Design Festival, we love seeing what’s new and on trend and is a great time to catch up with some manufacturers. This year we were lucky enough to make it to 100% Design and Design Junction, here’s a few of our favourites from each & we hope you agree!

The largest and longest running contemporary design event in the UK, 100% Design, this year was held at Olympia London, an exciting new venue with over 20,000m2 and 2 floors for exhibitors to display and show off their latest collections.

Clerkenwell Design Week 2015

Momentum's discoveries from Clerkenwell Design Week 2015

Clerkenwell was full of fun and new products this year, from the every extending range of contemporary showrooms, to the Farmiloe building that is the Design factory which was bursting at the seams with design and armed with coffee and ice lollies to keep us all going. The contrast between old and derelict looking building of the Farmiloe and the contemporary furniture inside works really well, it’s a shame Clerkenwell won’t hold the Design factory in the same building next year!

Maison & Objet

Maison & Objet Paris 2015

Paris is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, when Maison et Objet arrives it gets better, because of all the beautiful furniture of course!

This year was no exception, beauty whichever way you turned so PJ and Gemma had plenty to talk about when they got back.

Stand out pieces include a new sofa by Munna, credenza, tables and lights from Ginger & Jagger and pretty much the whole Meridiani stand!

Clerkenwell Design Week 2014

Clerkenwell Design Week 2014

May 20th – 22nd marked the 5th year of the annual Clerkenwell Design festival. Clerkenwell is home to more creative business and architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet. This makes it one of the most important design hubs and the perfect location for the UK’S leading independent design festival. With over 250 exhibitors the international design community flocks to this small area of London to find out what’s new in the design world and we were no different!

With representatives from Momentum present each day of the festival we were sure to see as much as possible! From the various exhibition buildings to the surrounding showrooms the streets were bustling with excited festival attendees.

Salone Del Mobile 2014

Salone Del Mobile 2014

April has been a busy month for anyone in the interior design industry including us here at Momentum.  The first exhibition, set up in 1961 was designed to promote Italian furniture and furnishings to the export market. It has since become an international affair and an exclusive showcase for the latest designs. In 2013 it was attended by 285,000 people, of which two thirds were from overseas. This event is a ‘must attend’ for anyone in the furniture business and was completely sold out this year!

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2013

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2013

We have always been big fans of the Stockholm furniture fair so a trip this year was eagerly anticipated.  It is not the best known or the biggest fair by far it is a smaller show and mostly populated by the well known Scandinavian brands - not overrun by the big international players.
