I love seeing a piece of furniture come alive, whether it's in an industrialized factory (which I saw a lot of while working for IKEA) or traditional handicraft. That's why I was thrilled when we had the opportunity to visit Expormim's factory and showroom on our Sunny Design tour in Spain this summer. Located in Moixent, an hour's drive from Valencia, Expormim has been making in- and outdoor rattan furniture for the last 55 years, always with the same high level of comfort, sturdiness and durability.

J'adore voir un meuble prendre vie, que ca soit dans une usine industrialisée (dont j'en ai visité un grand nombre lorsque je travaillais pour IKEA) ou de l'artisanat traditionnel. C'est pourquoi j'étais ravie quand on a eu l'occasion de visiter l'usine et le showroom d'Expormim pendant notre Sunny Design tour en Espagne cet été. Situé à Moixent, à une heure de route de Valencia, Expormin fabrique du mobilier en rotin pour l'intérieur et l'extérieur depuis 55 ans, toujours avec le même niveau élévé de confort, solidité et durabilité.

Did I mention that Expormim's showroom is located in the most stunning 18th century building?
