High Point Follow-Up

There are certain signs in the furniture business that tell you when consumers are feeling confident again. There is less ‘brown’ and more ‘vavavoom’ in color. There is less ‘safe’ and more ‘daring’ in design. There is less of the expected, and more of the unexpected. And that’s what LaDiff saw at the last High Point market!

Although the Eiffel Tower is much bigger than the lightweight Bistro chair, an equal amount of thought has gone into both metal works over the years. Both the Eiffel Tower and the Bistro chair attract people from all over the world. The Bistro Chair can be seen in Times Square, Bryant Park, Harvard University and of course, Paris. Just like the brains behind the Bistro chair, the Eiffel Tower proves that collaboration is key to good design.
