Occasionally in our travels we come across items that simply shouldn’t be missed out there. They are almost destination points in and of themselves. Today’s entry focuses on 4 furniture/home furnishing showrooms around the world. Each is incredible and designer types will be nicely rewarded for seeking them out. For additional recommendations on where to stay, eat and drink near the showrooms refer to TheModernList.
