Second Edition of French Design Days Digital Event

Business France reveals a beautiful delegation of 10 French designers and manufacturers eager to partner with North America based interior design professionals

NEW YORK, NY (April 5, 2021) - French Design Days is a virtual event, taking place from May 4th to June 4th, 2021, aiming to connect French designers and manufacturers to North America based interior design professionals including interior designers, architects, showrooms and manufacturer’s reps. These French companies are small & medium companies (SME) who are ready to export their know-how and willing to develop their revenue in the United States and Canada.

Produced by Business France, the trade and investment arm of the French Embassy, French Design Days’ goal is to help French high-end furniture and home decor companies better understand the local interior design market and present via video-calls their companies and unique know-how to potential business partners based out of North America.
The event will bring together 10 French designers, manufacturers and craftsmen including:

Bignon-Dervaux Bespoke home linen
Cyria Outdoor furniture
Drakkar Wood floors
Entrelacs Lighting
Galerie Diurne Rugs
LK Edition by Le Vaillant Katia Furniture
Maitres Robinetiers de France Bathroom fittings, accessories, and hardware
Octavio & Cie by Octavio Amado Lighting
SBALINI by Stéphanie Balini Lighting
Souchet Upholstered chairs

Francois-Yves Auger, who is in charge of the project for 2021, said: “With trade shows being cancelled, and restrictions on travelling to certain countries still in place, French Design Days aims to help North-American interior design professionals virtually travel to France through design. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about unique designers and manufacturers!”

This delegation will be presented at the beginning of April 2021 on the dedicated website
