This year, although the exhibition area of Furniture China had a slight decrease, the popularity of the design hall was not diminished at all, with the show up of many old friends, such as Dickson, A-Zenith, EXPOCASA, Moqi and COMO etc.

The reason why Furniture China is refreshing every year is not only the fact that mature brands have been racing to release new designs, new crafts, and new ideas in the past year, but also because of the continuous influx of young brands. Lepōs (2020), Qinhang (2019) and UFOU (2018), made an appearance again after a year, bringing “the intimate resonance of people, furniture and space in the post-epidemic era“, which was full of exploratory and interesting elements.

Despite facing the restriction of the epidemic, many international brands overcame various difficulties and arrived as promised. Six French brands that have been rooted in China for a long time made their appearances; Ligne Roset, Sifas, Gami, Galipette, Temahome, and Fermob were all in the C area. There were also brands from the Netherlands, the United States, and Australia such as Asiades, Maria Yee, and Boori. SifasGami + Galipette
