Paris Trade Show, Sept. 2010

This looks like just another photo of us at a trade show in our booth but what’s different this time? We are in PARIS!!

We just got back from our first experience exhibiting at Maison et Objet, one of the biggest and trend-setting home decor shows in the world. It is enormous — ten different halls that highlight different areas of home decor — furniture, textiles, ethnic chic, outdoor furniture, cutting-edge trends, home accessories and more.

The booths were extraordinary and it was fun to walk up and down the aisles to see the displays and products of companies from all over the world. The exhibitors and buyers come from everywhere and we had a lot of fun meeting new colleagues and clients — from Monaco, Malta, Saudi Arabia, Russia, France, Italy, Germany, England and elsewhere.

It was fascinating to see how differently the show operates from the New York and Atlanta shows where we have been exhibiting for 13 years. Fortunately, all logistics went smoothly and we learned the ropes for next time. We can’t wait for the next Maison et Objet show, which takes place in January. Will we see you there?
