The article presents the author's views about 'The Furniture Show.' A supplier mentioned to us this week that he thought retailers would be attending the show next week looking for the answers-whatever they may be. But one thing is for sure, they are tired of seas of oak and brown leather. After a very mediocre sale period, its fairly obvious that now is the time to find the next big thing. The show just gets bigger every year. As it becomes more international, you can literally shop for everything from a lamp and three-piece suite to a bunch of artificial flowers. Because everything is under one roof and covers the gambit of cutting edge looks right through to traditional, you have to find something that does the trick.
