On May 25-27 the largest Canadian furniture exhibition Canadian Furniture Show will be held in Toronto. This year as a part of the event two condominiums designed by the world-renowned Sergey Makhno Architects studio using only furniture from selected Ukrainian manufacturers will be exhibited.
According to Sergey Makhno Architects, condominiums will be executed in the style of “weighted eclecticism”.
“Here every object has its own character and its history. But at the same time – the space is holistic and harmonious. This is what we tried to achieve – each chair to remain in the leading role and not to “conflict” with the neighbor. The space to be cozy and inviting to stay”- said the founder of the design studio Sergey Makhno.
The Ukrainian stand will include the furniture of Ukrainian companies: Cube44 (living room and office furniture), ADK (living room and bedroom furniture), Aqua Rodos (bathroom furniture), Merx (kitchen, living room and bedroom furniture), Instyle (kitchen furniture), Stalkon (office furniture), Blest (living room and bedroom furniture), Snite (children’s furniture). Also outside the main booth furniture of Kulik System (office furniture) and Renaissance (children’s furniture) companies will be exhibited.
Ukrainian producers will enter the Canadian market under the joint Meblica brand.
Participants of the mission were selected by Canadian experts according to the preferences of North American consumers and the potential of the companies to enter the Canadian market.
The mission of Ukrainian furniture producers to Canada is the part of the U CAN Export support program initiated by the Canada-Ukraine Trade and Investment support project and Canada-Ukraine Chamber of Commerce with the assistance of the Government of Canada.
“Furniture is one of the priority sectors of Ukrainian exports to Canada. After Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement entered into force import duties for Ukrainian furniture were canceled and the export process was significantly simplified. This gives Ukrainian producers a significant competitive advantage on the Canadian market, “- CUTIS project statement goes.
According to the experts, Ukrainian participants of the Canadian Furniture Show will demonstrate the high quality of Ukrainian furniture to Canadian partners and to establish initial contacts with importers of overseas.
