International Home Furniture Market

Dr. Anna Milostanova, VP

1 Contemporary Furniture at 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. Many of our customers American citizens from India and Russia. Both love modern contemporary furniture. The finest European furniture comes from Italy. Everyone in the world loves modern Italian furniture," Dr. Anna says. In addtion she notes, "The price of Italian made furniture has gone through the roof in the past four years. At the same time, Italian and German factories have moved to China. As a result - extraordinary quality is coming from China for the first time. See the Evolution collection for one example. Smart customers are buying quality for less," Anna says.
