FURNISHER MAGAZINE JOINS RANKS OF ACID MEDIA SUPPORTERS
The recently rebranded Furnisher magazine, (formerly Retail & Professional Furnisher) has joined 18 other key trade titles to become an ACID media partner. As a design-led interiors industry magazine, The Furnisher is totally in support of ACID’s aims and objectives in fighting design theft. Now eight years old, The Furnisher continues to reflect the whole of the interiors industry presenting products, manufacturers, suppliers and services predominantly to a readership of retailers, buyers, specifiers and interior design businesses.
Regarding copyright and intellectual property issues, Editor Richard Elford commented: “The Furnisher team has a great deal of contact with the whole of the ‘interiors’ industry. The level of suspected infringement- much of it blatant- or the lack of clarity, on occasion, between agents or importers and their suppliers, is a problem. Joining an organisation such as ACID with their vast experience and success rate in IP dispute resolution should surely be a matter of course for many individuals and businesses within the furnishing industry.”
