If you are thinking about or working on your own home furnishing project or, like me, just love interior designs you may be interested in attending an event to get inspiration, meet key retailers/ suppliers, discover new brands and engage with interior designers.

There are a whole host of home furnishing and home building events from smaller local events to the larger national events.

I’ve trawled the web to bring you a list of the main home furnishing and interior design events in the UK happening throughout 2019 to save you time searching for events that meet your needs. Although many of these events have passed this year you’ll find they are annual occurrences so make sure you have a look at them and schedule the ones you love in for 2020.

I noticed that some of the events are hosted in numerous locations around the country like Build IT Live and others are themed to the season occurring twice a year with a winter and summer theme like Top Drawer.

Here is the list for you to browse and share with friends. I hope you find the event you’re looking for:

Over the next year I am aiming to attend many of the events, so I can give you the low down on the advantages of attending and what each one has to offer.

I’d also love to hear from you on any other events that aren’t on the list worth attending. Please send your feedback to info@kuldea.com.
