Held from 16 to 18 November in Mumbai, the first India International Furniture Fair (IIFF) gave local furniture trade professionals an international sourcing platform of around 100 well-known brands and companies from 17 countries, all there to show their latest residential, hospitality and office furniture and products.

China, Singapore and Spain also each marked their presence with a pavilion, while design and industry experts were in attendance to share their forecast of global and local trends with some 2,376 trade visitors.
