Proposte 2014

At Villa Erba in Cernobbio (Como) we will inaugurate on the 7th of May 2014 the 22nd edition of Proposte, World Preview of Furnishing Fabrics and Curtains. Europe's leading home textile manufacturers will be exhibiting their collections at a show focussed entirely on fostering business and international contacts.

May 7, 8: 9.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m.
May 9: 9.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m.


Only European manufacturers of furnishing fabrics, curtains and trimmings are admitted to exhibit at Proposte. They must share at least three characteristics: the qualification of their companies and products, professional correctness, commitment to research and development in creativity and technologies.

Over the three days of the last edition, an in-house style team looked at the exhibitors' collections and, for each, photographed, examined and described the products deemed to best represent the new collections, the most innovative products in terms of structure, design and colour.
