Espritmeuble Paris, taking place from 6-9th December at Porte de Versailles, will again present much of the best of furniture product from France and further afield in a dynamic environment that is rapidly earning its place on the European trade fair stage.

The event was created by a group of key figures in the French furniture industry: Gaétan Menard, Gilles Silberman and Alain Liault. According to the show’s organisers, this year Espritmeuble’s role in reinvigorating the country’s industry is more important than ever, so the event is leading with the tenets of anticipation, innovation and creativity, aiming to present the latest product developments in a professional setting.

Alain Liault, vice chairman of Espritmeuble, calls this the “wow” effect – the generation of greater impetus amongst consumers to spend within the sector – and, with special show features such as the design-oriented Fab Lab and 3D printing, Espritmeuble is well placed to catalyse sales.
