'Maison France'

Where do you go to find inspiration? Our previous newsletter recommended you visit manufacturers during tradeshows. New York based design firms are in luck! Starting on Monday the 21st and till the 25th of June, 30 French manufacturers are taking residency at the Felissimo Design House located at 10 West 56 Street, New York, NY 10019, during “Maison France.” Actually, the event should be considered like a boutique tradeshow for members of the Trade.

As such, this is a fantastic opportunity to build a relationship with manufacturers, who will go out of their way to provide a high level of service. Service, what does that entail? Imagine manufacturing to order. You are no longer restricted by a catalogue with predefined dimensions, colors, styles... Away with the “no not possible, this is not in our catalogue!” Rather than being preset, the catalogue here serves as a red-bull based cocktail for inspiration, unveiling trends and fashions as seen by past and current creative minds.

So why not visit “Maison France” and build up inspiration to create anew and in the spirit of…? Doing that, you might avoid spending endless hours with glossy magazines and city guides, carefully cutting out pictures, or visiting the period rooms of a national museum… You might find at “Maison France” a manufacturer with a long enough history and the corresponding catalogue along with the skill to adjust to any style. So why not tap into those sources? This is how some of those companies present themselves:

BASSAISTEGUY-MASSON specializes in the reproduction and creation of fine period French pieces of furniture. We offer our clients the possibility to benefit from the know-how of numerous artisan professionals to create quality furniture.
