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.
