“The ICFF is more than just a trade fair. It serves as a meeting point for the global design community in North America. And of course, with the mission to promote and highlight Brazilian furniture in all regions of the world, the participation of the Brazilian Furniture Project in such an event in the USA is crucial,” says Cândida Cervieri, Executive Director of ABIMÓVEL and manager of Brazilian Furniture. She adds, “We are ready to bring the Brazilian flair that caught so much attention in Milan for its aesthetic, material, and sustainable qualities to New York, another major power for global design.”

In 2023, the Brazilian participation promoted by the Brazilian Furniture Project resulted in 3,358 contacts, 87.3% of whom were new business partners, generating approximately US$106.8 million in immediate or projected businesses for the following 12 months.

The United States, in fact, is the main import market for Brazilian furniture, having been the destination for 31.9% of the total exported by the national furniture industry in 2023.
