SCANDINAVIAN SEATING DISTRIBUTOR VARIER® DEBUTS AT NEOCON®
New Designs for Comfort, the exclusive North American distributor for award winning Variér Furniture, has just completed a successful debut year of the Scandinavian line in the United States. Company CEO Ed Miano said, “At a time when many established companies are pulling back, we are forging ahead with innovative, quality products and dealer-focused marketing programs.” Fresh from its splashy return to ICFF showing in May, the brand already well known throughout Europe experienced a positive reaction from retailers, designers and national media. Miano elaborated, “At a time when trade show attendance is down, we estimate that Variér traffic quadrupled from last year’s national debut at ICFF.”
Variér’s ICFF booth generated a tremendous amount of buzz with its live performance artists interacting with the sinuous line of seating. This provocative presentation titled “A HUMAN IDEA” has been recreated for promotional use. To see the video, click on or copy this URL into your browser: http://www.vimeo.com/5075812.

In conjunction with its debut at NeoCon and to celebrate its one-year anniversary, New Designs for Comfort will be offering a special promotion on select fabric and finish combinations of Variér’s iconic PEEL™ Club Chair.

With eco-friendly wool, microfiber crafted of 100% recycled materials, leather and COM, hundreds of color and fabric combinations are possible and lend to the flexibility of this remarkable collection.
