We have arrived back at our headquarter in Hong Kong, thus completing our tour around Asia where we attended 6 different Furniture Fairs. The final stretch of our tour was in Guangzhou wherein 2 very-very intense days we visited CIFF 2018.
CIFF Guangzhou is the “sister fair” of CIFF Shanghai which typically takes place in September in Hongqiao, Shanghai.
It is just massive and you will need a good pair of sneakers to visit the 750,000 sqm of the Poly World Trade Center Expo.
This is the place where more than 4,000 Chinese and Asian Suppliers showcase their best products to a public of foreign buyers. This is a fair where you will read or hear everywhere “for export only”: factories will provide you with export prices only (typically lower than the domestic prices) and will not be interested in developing domestic contacts.
For a platform like ours it is vital to be here because this is the place where we first contact good domestic furniture and home décor Suppliers: also this year we managed to start many new commercial relationships with several niche Suppliers and their products will soon be visible on our platform (BTW, in the next 2 months you will experience major new developments, stay tuned!).
We particularly liked the creative Vecto Chair of Kamcho.
We also passed by to visit some of the Suppliers who are already part of our big community. Their new collections were simply stunning: kudos go to PIY and their “play it yourself” project.
Dolcevita with their modern and always original outdoor furniture.
My 3F2T, suppliers of great quality furniture that easily blend in with almost any modern environment.
JingLiving, thanks to their expertise and very openminded designers who respect traditional Chinese aesthetics, Jing Living is a brand that’s unique and we’re proud to have their products on our platform.
…and, finally, the outstanding new brand Twist Living “the new unconventional lifestyle living” presented by our friends of Artiture Creations: this new exceptional aluminum collection has been created by the Italian designer Claudio Bonicco and conquered us for its superb craftsmanship and playful colors.
The Suppliers part of our community are somehow special and very creative: it was good to see and touch that kind of innovative design and unique look which we are constantly looking for before uploading new products onto Dezoo.
We’re finally back to our office life, but please keep following us for new updates!
