Lifestyle Fair Vietnam 2014 – Furniture and accessories for home and contract projects

The Lifestyle Fair Vietnam 2014 is still on today, 21st of April 2014 , if you are in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, hop on over to have a look at the home accessories and other decorative items on display. Besides home accessories, there is a sizable amount of furniture items on display such as sofas, beds, cupboards, tables and chairs.

This is the fourth year that this Fair is running thanks to The Vietnam Gift and Housewares Association (Vietcraft) and the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (Vietrade). Touted as the one of the most impressive Home decor, Gift and Housewares fairs in Southeast Asia, “LifeStyle Vietnam 2014”, is definitely worth visiting if you are working with contract projects or retailing home accessories. You will find (at least according to the organizers advertisements), 1.000 booths and over 400 exhibitors. I doubt that is the real number of booths or exhibitors but the variety of products and the enthusiasm of the exhibitors in building new partnerships with overseas buyers is definitely worth a visit.

 

In this occasion, we met some very friendly exhibitors coming from Indonesia, actually there is a series of stalls that are showing furniture and handicrafts made by Indonesian furniture producers. Actually, this Furniture Fair is much more relaxed than the VIFA fair that took place last month in District 7 (Phu My Hung) and exhibitors are really more laid back.

One of many reasons to come to this fair is to visit accessories and home decoration dealers and producers such as lacquer ware, pottery, ceramics, woven products (rattan, water hycacinth), etc. These have some very interesting products that can be used for decorating and furnishing hotels, apartment buildings, resorts and any other contract furniture project requiring nicely crafted and practical items. The lacquer and other objects will give life to the interior decorators’ vision of a specific atmosphere or ambiance.

Located in the same location as previous years, near the airport:

Tan Binh Exhibition and Convention Center

446 Hoang Van Thu Street
Tan Binh District
Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam

Opening times are:

Fri 18 Apr 2014 : 09.00-18.00

Sun 20 Apr 2014 : 09.00-18.00

For those of us in the industry, not many novelties compared to previous years though you can see that some furniture producers are following current trends in furniture design and appearance such as the poly rattan furniture now using some very thick and round wicker which has become popular recently.

Here are some photos of products you can see at the Lifestyle Fair 2014:
