Since 1989 we have been developing an exclusive showroom concept and now have more than 700 showrooms spread around 25 countries.
1 new showroom every week worldwide
Having been successful in France, Germany, Italy and Spain where we have exclusive showrooms, our strategy is now to further develop in the UK.

Our development strategy is to reach 100 showrooms in UK in 2020.
