NEW YORK — The Portuguese Association of Wood and Furniture Industries (AIMMP) presents leading wood and furniture companies from the southern European country to showcase their premium products at Boutique Design – New York from November 12 - 13, 2023 at the Javits Center. 

“Our pioneering work with the best names in Portuguese design is based on the combination of a timeless and modern aesthetic with the ultimate goal of creating products that become more beautiful over time, intending to be passed down from generation to generation,” said a AIMMP spokesman.

A high-profile Portuguese delegation, led by Vítor PoGas, president of the AIMMP, is attending BDNY23 to connect with hospitality brands and designers to debut AIMMP's variety of Portuguese products of proven quality and distinguished designs.

Portuguese designs blend tradition and innovation, reflecting the country's rich cultural heritage and contemporary essence. With a history steeped in craftsmanship and a commitment to quality, the delegation will show that it is possible to provide integrated solutions to fully satisfy the ever-changing technical demands and creativity of architects and designers.

"The investment in the United States market, which began in 2022 with participation in ICFF [International Contemporary Furniture Fair] and now reinforced with presence in BDNY, represents an important step in affirming Portugal's internationalization strategy and confirming the competitive strength of the Furniture Industry in Portugal, in terms of quality, design and sustainability," said PoGas. "Today, Portugal is well positioned to become one of the major global suppliers of these products."

The participation of AIMMP at BDNY23 intends to expose the North American markets to provide long withstanding, exceptional design options for those in the luxury hospitality, real estate, and interior design space. AIMMP's brands take century-old techniques, renowned for quality, craftsmanship, and distinctive styles that often reflect the country's rich cultural heritage while heightening the aesthetic appeal of any room that a signature furniture piece adorns.

"Our pioneering work with the best names in Portuguese design is based on the combination of a timeless and modern aesthetic with the ultimate goal of creating products that become more beautiful over time, intending to be passed down from generation to generation," said PoGas.
