1 Contemporary Furniture attends the International Home Furniture Market to look at new designs for the year. Anna is a European furniture buyer with a keen eye for contemporary furniture. We are a global import/export compnay with customers primarialy in the USA. The finest furniture on earth comes from Italy. However, today a few Chinese factories have copied not only Italian design but Italian manufacturing secretes.
Extraordinary European quality is coming from China for the first time by European factories operating in China in their own factories - not using communist Chinese labor. The craftsman and machines have been exported to China. See the Evolution collection for one example. Smart customers are buying quality for less," Anna says.
