On one hand, a year full of difficulties, problems, deprivations, impasses but on the other hand, full of new ideas, visions and goals which became even stronger because of the current situation of the country. So, within this general quagmire, new people, fresh suggestions and different viewpoints came into the surface, proving that under pressure, the greatest ideas may arise.

More specifically, from "Furniture From Greece’s" aspect, 2012 was a totally positive year as far as design and Greek furniture industry are concerned. For the very first time, significant Greek companies made their best in clarifying that the made in Greece product worth being present in the international markets.
Therefore, fresh ideas and original propositions were presented, firstly during the international furniture fair imm in Cologne; there, the companies Candia Strom, Corpus,   De-Code, Elite Strom, Lattas and Morphos used their mastery in order to show that in the middle of the crisis, Greek products become more and more competitive day by day.
