Global furniture icon Roche Bobois Paris and internationally distributed interior design magazine Florida Design recently hosted members of the interior design industry for “Demonstrations and Discussions.” Champagne and a continental breakfast were enjoyed by the interior designers and architects who gathered at Roche Bobois’ new Aventura showroom for a presentation on “How to Get Your Designs Published” by Florida Design’s editorial team Annette Galbo and Robin Hodes. The event also introduced Roche Bobois’ new Trade Program, created for interior designers as well as residential/commercial builders, developers, architects, specifiers and other members of the trade.
“Roche Bobois has always considered interior designers to be among our most valued clients,” noted Julien Bigan, Roche Bobois communications director, U.S. “Their participation has helped our company enjoy our unique status as the largest, most successful furniture designer and distributor in the world.”
A highlight of Bigan’s Trade Program presentation, which he made along with Trade Division Design and Sales Manager, Florida, Carolina Caceres, was an overview of Roche Bobois’ new, interactive website whereby designers can see 3D images of furnishings and customize them in a virtual room with various fabrics and finishes. Visit www.roche-bobois.com, click “Products” then “3-D Studio.” Bigan also mentioned the quick-ship program, the availability of samples and that merchandise in their South Florida warehouse is available for immediate delivery.
“It was a pleasure to tour the designers around our showroom and hear about the exciting projects they’re working on,” said showroom manager Patrick Cabaroc. “Many of them showed great interest in specific pieces that have just arrived”
Florida Design’s Editorial Director Annette Galbo said, “Designers are the lifeblood of all our publications. You and the amazing projects are what have kept us atop the list of the country’s most widely read design publications for over 25 years.”
Publisher Jeff Lichtenstein added, “We always look forward to personally meeting with South Florida’s designers, and what better place to do so then in Roche Bobois’ beautiful new showroom.”
Roche Bobois is the world’s largest designer and distributor of high-end contemporary home furnishings with over 250 showrooms in 40+ countries.
