hector romero guest designer-international wall covering expo!
18th China Shanghai wallpaper decorative textile & soft decorations exposition
Aug 6th - 8th 2014
China loves wall covering about probably as much as they love their varied cuisine. Most Chinese households aspire to have beautiful wall covering to give life to their living spaces. I was fortunate to be invited as speciaL guest designer and was recognized for my contribution to the wall covering industry. Different than other events, Chinese enthusiasts went all the way for their passion of wall covering at this event. Booths with glamorous models and cars to catch your attention, even artisans working ancient hand looms to remind us where this tradition started. China is the largest manufacturer and consumer of this revered product and now breaking away from the use of traditional damask pattern which has been reinvented in thousands of ways to the point of exhaustion. Chinese love everything western including interior home products. I was so excited to be there and was proud to have my new developments featured at the event.
