January is a great month for the design industry with important dates such as the Imm Cologne and the Maison & Objet in Paris. From the 18th to 22nd January, The City of Light will turn even more attractive than ever celebrating the best in creativity and design and anticipating new trends in home décor. Every year, the show brings together some 3,000 exhibitors and more than 90,000 unique visitors – of which 50% hail from outside France.
The lifestyle show brings together a 360° product offering in two specialised hubs, MAISON which showcases the very best furniture collections and home interior solutions organised by style in four different halls, and OBJET, dedicated to objects and decorative accessories.
The 22 Spanish brands will be an outstanding presence exhibiting mainly at the MAISON hub in the TODAY and FOREVER halls with a significant participation in the SIGNATURE spaces, which gather the premium offer and innovative products from leading brands. In these sectors, FURNITURE FROM SPAIN will be represented by 13 brands which include some of the most recognized firms in the contemporary and luxury home décor: COLECCIÓN ALEXANDRA, NOMON, VICALHOME, THAI NATURA, GUADARTE, HANBEL-MONPAS, BRUCS, VONDOM, EXPORMIM, TREKU, SKYLINE DESIGN and iSiMAR.
Focused on the contract business and with an impressive offer that spans from the luxurious home décor to the most stylish proposals for contemporary indoor and outdoor spaces, Spain’s brands join the event to present their exceptional know-how and bespoke solutions specifically targeted to interior designers, architects, specifiers and hospitality professionals.
France is a long-standing client of Spain as it has been importing from Spanish companies a wide range of furnishing products for both the retail and contract markets. With their style infused by creativity, innovation and heritage, Spain’s design and furniture cover a demand that is not always satisfied by local producers.
As a result, over the latest years France has consolidated itself as Spain’s largest export market for furnishing products, receiving 436.2 million euros of Spain’s furniture exports in the period January-September 2018. France’s share of Spain’s exports (26.7%) is almost equal to that of Portugal’s, Germany’s, the USA’s and UK’s combined.
So, let’s meet in Paris this January and do not miss the Spain’s rich choice of new-to-market products and exclusive furniture collections. Get previews here! Au revoir!
