I visited the Woonbeurs (Interior Design Expo) Amsterdam this weekend. It was magic. I saw absolutely incredible things for the home of really surprising quality and craftsmanship. It was overwhelming But of course here at the Sunny Orangery, too much of a good thing is just about right. It was however alarming to see the number of companies that make and sell throw pillows! I have counted 35 at least. Throw pillows everywhere... Pillows that look like little carpets, pillows with silk flowers on them, pillows with birds on them, with poetry on them and so on and so forth.
I did leave with a feeling that what it all comes down to is having excellent sales people because NO ONE will know or care about your product if you don't strategically stick it under their knows at the right time.
