FURNITURE CHINA 2012 – Interview with Juan Carlos Muñoz Melero, President of ANIEME _______________________________________________________________ Could you pls give us a brief introduction about the Spanish furnishing industry and the development of Spain’s outstanding habitat brands? MUEBLE DE ESPAÑA, the brand created by ANIEME – the Spanish Association of Furniture Exporters-, has consolidated itself as a highly international brand, a fact that is confirmed by the increasing strong position of Spanish furniture in foreign markets and the ever greater number of countries to which Spain exports its products. The Spanish furnishing industry represents a very heterogeneous reality that combines the most refined handicraft tradition with cutting-edge manufacturing technology. That’s why at major events, Spanish furniture stands out not only for its high quality standards, but also for the stylish designs and the variety of an offer that is always catching up with new trends. The impressive ability to adapt to the demand of the moment and to different cultural contexts has led MUEBLE DE ESPAÑA to be one of the biggest names within the worldwide furnishing industry and one of the main suppliers of the contract sector. Both the Association and the companies are making a great effort to promote the Spanish furniture excellence and the brand MUEBLE DE ESPAÑA throughout the world.

Could you pls share some experience and further planning of brand building? MUEBLE DE ESPAÑA signifies passionate, elegant and cutting-edge collections that can be customized to meet every global-local taste. The use of high quality materials and state-of-the-art technology are the key of the success of Made in Spain high-fashion pieces created by big names of the Spanish design. Stronger commitments to ecological issues, which fortunately are getting more and more adepts over the latest years, have also been highly appreciated by purchasers of Spain’s products. One of the latest trends that we have observed in the Spanish habitat market is the suggestive blend of different styles, such as the art-deco with the most pure classical style. As a result, deco collections acquire an appealing look that can be used to add further drama to glamorous ambiences. On the other hand, different finishes, bold colours, less formal solutions and new materials have inspired new creative interior concepts.

MUEBLE DE ESPAÑA www.muebledeespana.com

What products are you going to exhibit in the upcoming September show? Could you pls introduce them to us? What is your forecast for the forthcoming event? MUEBLE DE ESPAÑA brings to Shanghai a group of 15 brands with an offer that will encompass from the most exclusive design pieces and high-end classic collections to new forward-thinking interior concepts, including also an amazing array of objets d’art, paintings and handcrafted frames.

PACO CAMUS and THE ANIMAL CHAIR COLLECTION will make a big impact with their original furniture pieces.

Have the Spanish furniture industry been affected by the current economic situation of Europe? Have you transferred your focus to China market? European countries such as France, Portugal, Germany, Italy and United Kingdom are still the main destination markets for Spanish furniture exports. Speaking about non European countries, Morocco, United States, Russia and Mexico are strengthening their imports of Spanish furniture and decorative items products. But also some African markets, like Angola, Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea, and Asian countries, such as India and China, are increasing their purchases from Spain. As for China, Spanish furniture exports have grown fast over the latest years, revealing a strong interest of Chinese consumers for recognized brands and Spanish designers. Well-known Spanish companies like VONDOM, MUEBLES CANELLA and VICENTE ZARAGOZÁ, among others, are opening new showrooms in China, pushing the brand MUEBLE DE ESPAÑA into top projects in Asia and turning it into the best choice for prestigious interior designers and architects.
