CVL Luminaires selected for the French Design Days 2022
For the French Design Days 2022, CVL Luminaires has been selected alongside 10 designers and manufacturers to promote French know-how. Lighting and decorative fixtures, furniture, floor coverings, textiles: the exceptional French know-how was really there.
It is on the initiative of Business France, the trade and investment section of the French Embassy, that this event has been taking place for 3 years. Business France acts to promote the international development of the French economy. Among the selection: companies like CVL Luminaires that combine design and quality materials. They have also participated in interior design projects in North America. The French Design Days are therefore a perfect opportunity to present their latest collections.
During the face-to-face days from May 16 to 18, CVL Luminaires was able to meet individual North American interior design professionals who come especially for the ICFF show. Unlimited possibilities to expand your network and customer base! Architects, interior designers and decorators were able to discover, in the dedicated showroom in New York, the CVL Contract products selected for the occasion.
At the French Design Days, they come to seek out high-level craftsmanship for which all stages of production are mastered. In the luxury lighting sector, CVL can offer them technical expertise in brass and the production of custom-made and unique pieces. The UL certification of products is the very illustration of CVL’s deep determination to enter into long-term business relationships with design professionals across the Atlantic.
