The latest home, furniture, gifts and accessories trends to start you off in the New Year

The January Furniture Show has packaged the perfect parcel for its 2017 event as it plays host to some of the gift world's biggest and best-known names.

An array of gifts, homewares, artwork and accessories will be on show at the mustattend event at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in January 2017.

Some of the big names already signed up include Gallery Direct, Pacific Lifestyle, Libra, Dar Lighting, Culinary Concepts, CIMC, Art Marketing, Artko, Marshall Arts, British Art Company, Malini, Mindy Brownes, Lovelane and Febland Group.

They'll all be showcasing their latest products and developments in the home and gift sector.

Laraine Janes, co-director of the January Furniture Show, said: "The gifts and accessories hall has become an increasingly important element to the show as more and more furniture retailers look to stock decorative items and artwork.

"The calibre in this sector is incredibly high so visitors to the show are guaranteed to see high quality and beautifully designed pieces."

Hall 3 will be dedicated to giftware and accessories and, thanks to demand, the show has increased its space to accommodate more exhibitors. It provides retailers and designers the first opportunity to see new launches and up-and-coming trends for 2017 under one roof.

At a glance
Here's a sneak preview of what visitors can expect to see... As one of the largest business-to-business suppliers of furniture, lighting and giftware, Pacific Lifestyle offers outdoor furniture ranges to complement its extensive gift ranges, along with timeless and contemporary furniture collections.

It will be showcasing its five current trends: Berlin, Harmonie, Urban Jungle, Henley and Elgin Estate.

Berlin focuses on the reclaimed, distressed look; Harmonie features chalky pastels offering a calming soft appearance; Urban Jungle celebrates the tropical world with vibrant colours and globally-inspired style; Henley taps into the coastal theme with sandy, driftwood tones and classic whites; and Elgin Estate channels the outdoors through colour aiming to create a log-cabin hideaway look.

Culinary Concepts has lots of new and exciting products lined up for 2017, including a range of occasional chairs in stunning trending colours and fabrics. There will be an array of new and inspiring lighting to be added to its growing collections.

Visitors to the Dar Lighting stand will, once again, see some of the company's broad spectrum of designs from traditional chandeliers and large statement pieces to a full range of table and floor lamps, wall lights, exterior lights, decorative lighting, easy-fit pendants and lampshades.

Renowned Gallery Direct - whose eyecatching stands are often a huge talking point of the show - will, once again, be offering a wide variety of home furnishings to suit all tastes and styles of room, from beautifully elegant to exquisitely modern.

Lovelane continually design and source wall d├ęcor and home accessories to suit a variety of rooms and moods. It will be showing its newest trends for 2017, including clocks and canvases, wall art and mirrors.
