How has the Marbella shop evolved during this time? In 2008 the shop’s exterior was renovated. We remodelled the facade and the display windows, and we also changed the staircases and the inside arrangement. The shop has three separate buildings, with the total area of 1,200 square metres, which allows us to display a wide range of furniture items and sofas. Every year we adapt ourselves to the design of the new collection and change all the decoration of the shop, including the paintings and wallpaper. Can customization be considered as a key trend in the current luxury environment? Customers are keen to have their decoration customized, and that is a luxury. Roche Bobois offers its products in a wide variety of materials, colours and sizes. We personalize our services creating tailor-made solutions and providing our clients with unlimited opportunities in choosing textile fabrics, colours, skins and leather, wood varieties, finishes, etc. Every piece of furniture turns into something unique and exclusive. You provide a wide array of services. Do you carry out all kinds of decoration projects? We work with the housing plan and, together with our clients, choose the kind of furniture that our customer likes and prepare the final version of the project in 3D, including the paintings, wallpaper and curtains. We also give advice on which carpets, lamps, accessories, pictures, etc. to select. We create a complete environment.

Roche Bobois excels at design. And is exclusiveness another strongest point of your brand? We collaborate with the best designers in the world in order to constantly make exclusive collections, and every year we present two new collections, ‘Spring/Summer’ and ‘Autumn/ Winter’. We always keep an eye out for fashionable clothes collections and adapt them to seasonal trends. What are the current furniture trends for this season? We’ve just launched our new collection “Globe Trotter”, designed by Marcel Wanders. As he said, “This collection is a tribute to the adventurers that we all dream of being”. The new trend is full of colour and takes us on a journey to Paris, Istanbul and London. Are your clients mostly domestic or do they also come from foreign countries? The majority of our customers come from abroad since Marbella is a place where one can find people of different nationalities. But we’ve also noticed that there have been more and more clients from Spain, and we are very pleased with that. In your opinion, what is the best designer furniture fair in the world? The Milan Furniture Fair, which takes place in April. It’s a huge and impressive place that offers a lot of decoration ideas.
