Three of Britain’s largest independent furniture retailers will line up at consumer home design event Grand Designs Live this week.

Cousins, which trades from stores in Birmingham, Dudley and Manchester, and Lee Longlands, which operates half a dozen Midlands shops extending from Derby to Abingdon, will both feature at the event.

Emerging furniture chain The Furniture Barn, which now trades from eight stores across England, is the third large independent retailer to showcase its wares at the consumer show.

All three will exhibit within the Grand Interiors component of the Grand Designs Live event, which starts tomorrow morning (8th–11th October) at the NEC in Birmingham.
