Fine Furniture – The Tradition Continues from the UK

Each year in Great Britain there are a number of exhibitions, expo’s and shows featuring the very best in innovation, traditional and contemporary upholstered furniture, lighting, flooring and other aspects of Interior Design.

Two of the more interesting shows scheduled annually are the Long Eaton’s Guild of Furniture Manufacturers Spring and Autumn Shows, named ‘Spring Long Point’ and ‘Autumn Long Point’. These shows present the works of a cluster of furniture manufacturers in the East Midlands of the UK. Click here to visit the website

The guild is designed and operated to present the works of local manufacturers, sharing their knowledge, experiences and the heritage behind their endeavours. The furniture speaks for itself in its craftsmanship and excellence. Both shows also feature ‘online’ virtual shows where the manufacturer’s websites are profiled in succession during the show.



The furniture profiled is traditional or traditional with contemporary interpretations. Here in Australia, Wills Furniture continues this fine tradition in producing hand crafted, artisan finished furniture utilising a broad range of fabrics and leathers from recognised suppliers such as Boyac, Dempsey Group (Domestic Textiles), Warwick and Tigger Hall Design.

We applaud the Guild and its traditions and here we endeavour to maintain the same industry standards with every piece we manufacture. The Wills Furniture Collection is the result of 80 years interaction with Craftsmen, Artisans, Interior Designers and Decorators.


Each Wills Collection item is immaculately finished, providing comfort, luxury and eye catching style and beauty.

When choosing to refurnish, to redesign or redecorate, please view the Wills Furniture Collection for inspiration and real choice. At Wills, our upholsterers and artisans are familiar with the requirements of Interior Designers, Decorators and Architects.
