Mattresses from Isbir, furniture from world-famous brand Pierre Cardin, leather furnishings from Montel, were showcased during the five day event.

Turkish furniture has created a niche for itself in the international arena because of high quality design and competitive price. Presently, over 110 countries import home furnishings from the region.
