MIFF 2024: Strong at Thirty

The Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF), Southeast Asia’s largest B2B home and office furniture trade show, reached a laudable milestone this year, turning 30. With the number of attendees as well as dollar-value of orders placed posting gains over previous years, organizers have a lot to be proud of.

TMH 583-1 & TMH2257SD | TMH Furniture Industries

In a country that prides itself on wood furniture exports, to be able to claim to be one of the first to bring bentwood technology into Malaysia is a notable achievement, so kudos to TMH. This Desk and Chair pairing were launched at MIFF and are a departure for the company, which focuses mainly on dining tables.

Senna | Oasis Furniture Industries

Designed by Sujak Hasbollah and one of many sound pod options in the company’s Ideas Incubator collection, they are all engineered with sound acoustic material able to reach Sound Transmission Class (STC) of 40.

Cairo Living Room Set | Hupsheng Furniture Industries

A three-piece set that somehow manages to pay homage to the Malaysian staple of rattan but puts a modern spin on the material that doesn’t feel pejorative.

Hey Hatch | Vistawood Industries

Several eye-catching pieces were on display that came from an incubator programme called Timb3r to assist the Malaysian timber and furniture industry to grow and upgrade along the design and brand value chain. This piece, designed by Cayenne Lim from A Moxie Associates and manufactured by Vistawood Industries using Semangkuk wood, can be transformed from a dressing table with a mirror to armchairs, a coffee table and a baby crib to adapt to different stages.
