Abbeylands Furniture Ltd / Scatter Box made their debut at Ambiente, Frankfurt.

By IFHS Team | Feb 01, 2019

Last Month, Scatter Box made their debut appearance in Ambiente, exhibiting at the Messe Frankfurt trade fair. 

MD Caroline Horgan says “Ambiente provided us with a great platform to introduce our products to the European market. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we are thrilled with the positive reaction to our collection and with the number of international buyers that visited our stand, that we don’t get to see at the NEC. We’ve taken orders from Germany, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Poland, Spain, France and have a full lead generation. We will definitely return next year.”


2019 also sees Abbeylands Furniture Ltd celebrating 40 years in business. Established in 1979 by Danny Fitzpatrick, Abbeylands Furniture started out as furniture manufacturers. When Danny’s daughter, Caroline Horgan took over from her father, the sector was in steep decline. Horgan had to look at the capabilities of the company to survive and 12 years ago it diversified into home interiors.

Today their brand Scatter Box, is Ireland’s leading designer furnishings brand supplying many renowned retailers throughout Ireland and the UK. They manufacture and supply luxurious cushions; hand made from using material from exclusive European fabric mills and magnificent digitally printed cushions produced from their own original hand painted designs. Alongside this they stock a range of beautiful velvet upholstery furniture, original hand painted art, home accents, curtains, bedding and throws. Their design team travel the world sourcing materials to produce two collections a year.  These collections comprise of the latest colours and designs to reflect the different moods and expressions of the current interiors and fashion trends. They pride themselves in supplying a high-quality product at an affordable price.

So far to celebrate their 40 years, Scatter Box had their biggest ever stand at this year’s January Furniture Show. The company invited existing and potential new customers to join their team on its stand for a glass of prosecco or coffee, handmade chocolates and an exclusive free gift that features the brand’s own original hand-painted designs.  It was such a hit with customers that they have decided to do it again at the IFHS in August.  Horgan added “I would like to thank all those who have supported the business over the past 40 years, whether as a customer or colleague.”
