Domus : Christmas Design

From Saturday 14 November 2009 to Sunday 3 January 2010, DOMUS in partnership with VIA, will be presenting the ’Christmas Design’ show, offering visitors a unique and offbeat selection of 100 decorative objects for the festive season, on all of which shines the star of design!

100 Designer objects
The superb fairy-like mise en scène for the show takes people into the world’s largest gift-wrap, 4 metres high, installed inside the Centre. There they browse the display of a hundred exclusive objects, selected by experts from VIA from the leading designers of today and available at all DOMUS sales outlets.
This show spells the end of corny decorations and bland festivities: Santa Claus has come to DOMUS town! The exclusive selection of recently developed sustainable products will make all the difference in interiors for a long time after Xmas 2009...

DOMUS has updated old Father Christmas’s list
DOMUS has updated old Father Christmas’s list to avoid down-key surprises, revisiting the traditional stuff that turns up in stockings at the foot of the Xmas tree with 100 new objects on display at the exhibition, complete with creators’ credits and references. Visitors out to shop can simply tick on the objects of their choosing and slip the letter into the stocking of their loved one... The magic of Xmas does the rest!
With the Christmas Design show, DOMUS is asserting its partnership with VIA throughout 2009 and also reinforcing its place on the Parisian cultural and artistic scene.

DOMUS, with headquarters at Rosny-sous-Bois, is the leading multi-sign sales centre entirely focused on home layout and decoration. Its unique set-up enables visitors to get expert advice, services and a wide range to choose from in the same place in the least possible time. Almost 100 stores, all focused on homeware, propose objects, furniture and accessories to satisfy the tastes and desires of all. The DOMUS Centre regularly extends its network with new partners, such as Maison & Co, Extramuros, Home Lovers, Limitless and the largest retailer of domestic electrical appliances in France: SATURN.
