2013 VISITOR TESTIMONIALS
"There's no place like home" and, in our experience, this includes our favourite exhibition – Home. Furnishing hotels requires our team to source, locate, select and transact with the most diverse range of suppliers; a two-day visit to Home brings us closest to both startling new companies such as Roddy & Ginger and international manufacturers like Seletti and Form Living. We love Home." Daniel Englender - Benjamin West
"We greatly enjoyed our recent visit to the Home UK and Top Drawer shows. It gave us the opportunity to connect with current suppliers and find some new potential vendors. We left inspired by what we saw both at the show grounds and in stores around London"
Pamela Shaw - Product Manager, Retail Division, The Museum of Modern Art
“We really enjoyed our visit to Home this January. Our buyers placed orders and made some good contacts at the show and felt very positive following their visit. We look forward to returning to Home again in 2014.”
Haruyasu Yamamoto - Isetan Mitsukoshi
“Home 2013 was even better than last year and has secured a prominent anticipated position in the international retail show calendar. There is a great selection of unique, creative brands in a well sized, manageable show. I am looking forward to returning to the show in 2014.”

Doris Pietrek - Director of Product Development & Global Sourcing: Home, ANTHROPOLOGIE
"It was great to have a look around this year, I thought just by wandering around the stands, it really sparked ideas, it was particularly inspiring to find the corner with the wallpaper and fabric stands and it was exciting to come across such talented designers as Kiran Ravilious and Jessica Hogarth"
Michela Colling - Ideal Home
"I loved visiting the Home exhibition. It was great to see such variety of designers up close and it opened my eyes to a whole host of possibilities at Home. The Homegrown section really gives unknown brands the chance to shine and it’s great to see an industry working hard to promote young and upcoming designers"
Vicki-Marie Cossar - Metro Interiors Editor
"I go to Home looking for fresh and imaginative designs for the interior and always find pieces that surprise and delight. It's a brilliantly curated show"
Katrina Burroughs - Sunday Times Home/FT - How to Spend it.
"I would say Home had the biggest concentration of any trade show around at the moment of interesting and happening designers, both new and established, both small and large - and they're all put together in a brilliantly accessible way"
Katie Law - Evening Standard
"Home was a great place to meet our brightest home brands on friendly accessible home territory - along with some new finds from abroad. And Sunday first-day opening is a brill chance to get ahead"
Barbara Chandler - photographer and design writer for the London Evening Standard
"I thought the show had a great mix of exciting brands established and new - and offered a diverse range of product, I especially liked the "homegrown" section and would love to see more brands in that section next year!"
Jennifer Haslam - Freelance Stylist: Ex Easy Living & Living Etc
"Home 2013 was an excellent show with plenty of fresh ideas and lots of interesting companies to see, including quite a few home décor names new to me both from the UK and abroad"
