For more than 50 years, the imm cologne has been one of the most important furniture fairs in the world. The upholstery segment is the leading light of the event. As such, it is given high priority by the imm cologne, covering approximately one third of the occupied space. The imm cologne showcases the entire spectrum of upholstered furniture, from starter sofas to premium design products.
No other international show provides such an in-depth and comprehensive overview of the new trends in the international upholstered furniture industry, as well as the accompanying services and marketing concepts. With more than 100,000 visitors and its unique mix of national and international professionals, consumers and other multipliers such as architects and designers, the imm cologne represents an ideal combination of supply and demand.
In the Cologne furniture fair’s biggest sub-section – the “Comfort” segment in Halls 4.1, 5, 6 and 10 – the German upholstered furniture industry is prominently represented. Firms like Himolla, Elastoform, Steinhoff, Koinor, Polipol/Zehdenick, Machalke, Frommholz, Willi Schillig and Ewald Schillig, will be presenting convincing proof of the German upholstered furniture industry’s innovative potency.
A host of new German and international exhibitors and returnees will also be joining the Comfort segment at the imm cologne 2010. Candy, Carina and FM Munzer will be attending the Cologne show for the first time, joined by companies like Hukla, Ponsel, Nordica, Natuzzi, Hjellegjerde, Molinari and Hans Kaufeld, who will be participating in the trade fair again next January.
But upholstered furniture isn’t only on show in the Comfort segment: it plays an important role in the Pure section too. Cor, Cassina, Walter Knoll and De Sede will be showing their innovations in Hall 11 alongside firms like Rolf Benz or BrĂĽhl & Sippold.
