Our first showroom in the US opened in New York City, in the Soho area, in 2000,” says Lilian Leong, Boffi USA-President. “Since then, we’ve opened in Los Angeles, and then DC. Now, we’re also in Chicago. Boffi Georgetown is one of the most beautiful showrooms for us. Not only is its location beautiful, in the hub of design and fashion, its interior affords us the space to showcase our products without reserve.”

For a company to be in business for 80 years, the brand must have value and continue to evolve.  “When visitors enter a Boffi showroom, they might be surprised by the products, but also by the charm and character of the space,” Boffi Spa CEO Roberto Gavazzi added. “But we have to sell more than products; we have to create emotions in a space.”
