Anger over canal furniture exhibition ‘stunt’

Published: 14 September, 2012

VISITORS to Regent’s Canal were greeted with the sight of a floating furniture exhibition close to Danbury Bridge this week.

The two-day event, organised by IKEA, involves 12 pontoons laden with the latest home fashions, but it did not go down well with narrow boat skippers trying to navigate to City Basin lock.

Chairman of Friends of Regent’s Canal Ian Shacklock said: “It was an obvious publicity stunt but it could have impeded canal craft wanting to turn around outside the lock.”
