When we think of Spain, we think of tapas, siestas, colourful cities, and beautiful Mediterranean beaches. Spanish culture is vibrant, exciting, and is always trending in some way. In addition to the aspects we mentioned, there’s another export of Spain that deserves attention – Spanish product design. Interiors From Spain, an initiative from the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade, or ICEX, is aimed at promoting design from Spain – furniture, lighting, textiles, tiles, kitchen and bath fittings, rugs and decorative accessories.
In today’s product picks, we visit some of the best designs from Spain. It’s by no means even close to a comprehensive list, but it should give you a decent idea of what Interiors From Spain has to offer.
