Best of 2018 - Top 20 Furniture & Lighting New Releases

The Best of 2018 Furniture & Lighting Releases

When we sat down to review 2018 in design terms, we were shocked at just how many fantastic new arrivals to the Utility offering that there actually were. In fact, quite a few of the products that made our "Top 20" list have become such loved designs that they almost seem to have been around forever.

In 2018 we've seen the release of a beautiful limited edition lamp from Denmark's lighting experts Louis Poulsen, a whole host of stunning releases from Ferm Living, an update to the ever popular Stacked range from Muuto and a re-release of Arne Jacobsen's Pot Chair from Fritz Hansen. It's been a pretty strong year!

Curious to know what else made the list? Feel free to take a look below and let us know if anything makes it onto your wish list.

Top 20 New Arrivals

The list below has been made up of staff picks, best sellers and items that have received the most love on our social media accounts during 2018. Narrowing down the year's best new arrivals into a list of 20 was a tough task but we've given it a go. Is there anything that you think should have been on the top 20 list? Let us know in the comments! For now though, have a look below and remember, you can find all the product links at the bottom of the post.

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Thank you for all your help and customer service, the Eames Lounge Chair arrived yesterday and I love it.
