A week or so after getting back to the Design Studios here in Somerset - we are all still enjoying the buzz of having been to a really exciting and busy Show. JFS 2017 was our first major Show since our MBO at the beginning of last year and it really did pass all of our expectations.

JFS was the first opportunity that we had to show off at the NEC our newest ranges, the Eaton and the brand new Somerdale. Trade press and customers alike were unanimous-everyone loved them! What also made the Show take off for us was the very positive reaction and feedback to the unique new paint and finish options that we are now able to offer on both the Bretagne and the Somerdale.

As well as the Bretagne, Somerdale and the Eaton (with the 2 new oak finishes), we also brought with us the increasingly in-demand Vintage. The new Vintage chairs were big sellers.

However, as always, what made JFS 2017 such a success was having the opportunity to meet and chat to so many of our customers-both new and existing. So, thank you for those of you who made it Birmingham and for those who didn’t we shall no doubt be in touch with you shortly to let you know exactly what you missed!

Best wishes

Ross Charlton Managing Director

PS. A big ‘thank you’ to the many customers at Sunday’s JFS who asked after my health! Delighted to say that I made a full recovery so a big ‘thank you’ also to the medical team who looked after me.
