The article highlights some of the best upholstery. Innovation was at a minimum in fabric upholstery. Rather like Ian Duncan Smith doing a juggling act--this was a conservative show. The Young Designers, Halls 7 and 8 boasted the Isos collection. The initiative was set up to take the best of London design and manufacture to the heart of the retail trade. Slightly more traditional is the Westbridge collection. These are designed to compete at the higher end of the market, and are even less frightening. Sofas were huge. If they were impractical, they were in. If they were only appropriate for Scottish castles, they were in.
