This article focuses on ways in which British furniture companies can enter into the Russian market and make their mark. The market in Russia for contemporary design is where Great Britain was 10 years ago when 100% Design was first launched in London. Meanwhile UK Trade and Investment has, for the second year, organised a trade mission to The Furniture Show including a group of buyers representing Russian furniture retailers. One potential stumbling block in the drive to expand British furniture exports overseas is a cut in funding for UK Trade and Investment budgets for April 2005-April 2006 as part of a drive to cut 84,150 civil service jobs from Whitehall.
