Mercado 2017 Highlights the Best in Home from Portugal
August 21, 2017,
NEW YORK— More than 30 home décor, furniture, architectural and gourmet resources from Portugal will be showcased at the Lofts at Prince Sept. 6 and 7. Mercado 2017 is highlighting companies leading the “Portuguese Renaissance” in home furnishings, according to the event organizers.
Color Dynamic is a thermosensitive bed and bath linen that changes color with touch.
Companies featured in the showroom will include More Textile Group, Amorin (makers of cork forest products), Revigres (ceramic tiles), Tapeçarias Ferreira de Sá (the only handknotted rug producer in Europe, it said), and ceramic tableware by Porcel, Moveis Viriatov, Menina Design and Adalberto Estampados.
MoreTextile Group will showcase two innovations—Eco Heather and Dynamic Color. Eco Heather is produced from the refuse of the group’s spinning mill waste. By reusing the waste, Eco Heather obtains a blend of several fibers. An efficient industrial process transforms the blend into a new usable yarn that is durable as well as smooth in texture and appearance after washing. Meanwhile Color Dynamic is a thermosensitive bed and bath linen that changes color with touch.
Amorin makes cork forest products with “sound shield,” a hardwood innovation.
The Lofts at Prince showroom is located at 177 Prince Street on the sixth floor. The showroom will open at 4 p.m. on Sept. 6, followed by a cocktail reception on the rooftop from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. At 7 p.m. there will be a cooking demonstration by Hélio Loureiro, acclaimed chef from Porto, Portugal. The showroom will be open again Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To RSVP to the cocktail reception and/or to book an appointment at the showroom, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
